    Marble Sculpture- The Veiled Virgin- Giovanni Strazza - Imgur


    Zentralfriedhof statue - It blows my mind that this is a piece of stone and it still looks like a veil covering a face. Many years ago it was something of a test of skill for a sculptor to create a veiled face. This is one of the absolute best.
