The Rape of Proserpina

by Gian Lorenzo Bernini

I have always known Michaelangelo as the best sculptor. But recently I discovered this sculptor and I was amazed of his works. At first I saw the portion of the whole sculpture (first picture), I thought it was a oil painting. It would still be great if it was. However, it was a sculpture made of marble. How he made it to be so real. The touch, press, and texture was greatly portrayed as if it was real.
