The photograph above is of a marble statue created in 1847, called “The Veiled Vestal Virgin”, by Raffaele Monti. And no matter what your eyes are telling you, that is a solid marble statue. Not marble draped in sheer linen, no Photoshop tricks – that is just solid stone and pure artistic talent.
Monti was an Italian poet, author and sculptor. His father, Gaetano Matteo Monti, was also a noted sculptor of his time. If you live in the UK, you can actually see this piece in person – it’s currently on display in the Dome Room of Chatsworth.
