Advent Calender - Day 17

Only 8 days to go until Christmas!

Sorry it's a bit late today. Today's offering is Bernini's sculpture in S. Andrea delle Fratte. The angels holds a crown of thorns. The drapery is dramatically sculpted, expressing movement and giving the sculpture an emotional element. This extends to the handling of the clouds on which the Angel stands.
