I agree, sheer beauty!

And this beauty is over 2000 years old?!
Amazing too how William Blake's print changed it. (Thanks for the link.)

I love this. I'm also jealous. Your camera is much better than the one I had when I visited.

Not only is the sculpture itself a thing of amazing beauty, I must say I've never quite seen bodies quite that awesome. ;-)
