i hope you, too, thought this was a picture of actual human beings. the fingers that slightly indent the flesh of a woman. looks normal. but it should not. it is a 400 year old sculpture - marble - that is an effing hard material. / Bernini Sculpture: Pluto and Proserpina (1621-22)

Bernini, Pluto and Proserpina, 1621-22, Galleria Borghese, Roma

This is a detail from Bernini's famous Pluto and Proserpina/Persephone 1621 in the Borghese Gallery in Rome. - the realistic detail carved from marble is astounding!

this looks like a Bernini sculpture to me--the flesh is so real you can almost feel it.

Amazing and enormous sculpture. Had to do a double take there... @_@
