‘Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi’

Two of the four river statues from Bernini's Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi.

Bernini’s Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi. I have to say, I was comparing these figures to Michelangelo’s David and wondering if they were somehow inferior. I thought they were extraordinarily good. The muscle definition, the poses, the fine details were all realistic and lovely. And the scope of the project was even grander than David.
