The kiss of death.

This astonishing sculpture forms part of Barcelona’s Poblenou Cemetery.  The Kiss of Death (El Petó de la Mort in Catalan and El beso de la muerte in Spanish) dates back to 1930. A winged skeleton bestows a kiss on the lips of a handsome young man: is it ecstasy on his face or resignation? Little wonder the sculpture elicits strong and varying responses from whoever gazes upon it.

myancientworld:

Detail of Antinous, the lover of emperor Hadrian. According to Hadrian he had ‘drowned in a river’; however, there is debate as to whether he in fact committed suicide or sacrificed himself.

now this is remarkable.
i hope you, too, thought this was a picture of actual human beings. the fingers that slightly indent the flesh of a woman. looks normal. but it should not. it is a 400 year old sculpture - marble - that is a fucking hard material.
contemporaries used to describe the way bernini worked as “raping marble” because he could do things to it, others were not even able to think of.
another sculpture of his “apollo and daphne” is just as remarkable because he managed to sculpt leaves that were so thin they became translucent. remember we are talking about stone here.
