I’m completely enchanted by the “Appennine Colossus” created by Giambologna (1579) which rises from a lake on the grounds of the Villa Medicea di Pratolin. Different perspectives (in color) can be found here, here and here.

Colossus was found (here) on my latest blog discovery, the lovely La Divan Fumoir Bohemien, a delectable feast for the eyes. Her aesthetic is pretty special. I wish I spoke French, so much is lost in google translation >:(
