Lightly child, lightly (2)

Hello! Gian Lorenzo Bernini?

Sculpture or architecture?

Sculpture, of course. Every time.

It’s the fourth aisle on the right, top left shelf.

Do you know The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa?

Yes, I’ve seen the pictures.

Oh, no, no, no, no. You must see it in the flesh. It’s incredible. He makes tons of marble simply float. Defies gravity with beauty. Destroys logic with emotion.
