Veiled Lady

I guess I have to preface this post by telling you 
this is definitely not something I created with my hands... 
but other people certainly did... that counts, right?


Well,
we finally made it to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts
A gorgeous building with so much inside
I might have to go back three 
or seventeen more times to soak it all in


This was my hubbys favorite piece- the mustache rocks all

Here is my favorite, 
and the main piece that I came searching for:

Veiled Lady, by Rafaelo Monti 
1860, Marble


Isn't she gorgeous? 

Rewind to last week.... I was randomly thinking about this sculpture one evening and decided to research it and learn where it is from, etc. I had seen it in movies and pictures, and I love it. In my searching I discovered that the original piece [THE REAL THING] was being held at a museum only a couple of minutes from my house all along! WHAT. Of course we had to go right away! I never could have expected to be able to actually see the real sculpture, I just wanted to know more about it. It was truly an amazing experience for me. 

Needless to say, it made my day.
