the artist that create this monumental sculpture is Benvenuto Cellini, this work is a true masterpiece, and your shot was amazing, this picture capture the impressive dramatism of these characters in a perfect way, very well done...:thumbsup::)

Fantastic shot! I love the little gremlin thing on top of his helmet :) I've never seen an image of this statue so close up before, and it looks like you were on the same level as his head - how did you get so high up? I've been to Florence so I know where Perseus stands.

I read some of Cellini's autobiography a few years ago and he came across as an arrogant fantasist, but what a sculptor he was!
