THE GREAT EMANCIPATOR
During his presidential campaign, Lincoln was a man so unpopular, southern states threatened to leave the USA if he was elected. And sure enough, before he took office, seven did, with four more to follow. Lincoln, with little regard for the Constitution, suspended habeas corpus, a pillar of American democracy. Ignoring state’s rights, Lincoln charged into the Civil War – the bloodiest war in American history, with more than 1.6 million recorded casualties. But, 150 years later, we remember Honest Abe as the president who held the Union together during a tumultuous time, and the man who paid the ultimate price for the abolishment of slavery.

DAVID SLAYS GOLIATH: As the Philistine Goliath moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground - 1 Samuel 17:48. Bernini’s sculpture perfectly captures this historic moment in time without missing a single moment.
FROM MARBLE TO SILVER SNAPSHOT: The original life size sculpture was completed in a mere 7 months and is still seen today in the Galleria Borghese. Here we see David, seconds away from throwing his stone. This was a trailblazing sculpture, completely interacting with its environment. It introduced a new standard in capturing movement and emotional intensity – a true snapshot. And nothing has been lost in our translation from marble to silver.

Hiding among the ancient beauty of Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi you’ll find Bernini’s Lion. After being denied a chance to design the fountain by Pope Innocent X, Bernini planted a model to be seen only by the Pope. On seeing the model, the Pope was captivated, and hired Bernini for the fountain, and of course, the striking Lion hidden within.
“Sculpture Is The Art Of Intelligence” – Pablo Picasso
Nothing could be closer to the truth, than the sculptures of Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598 – 1680). No other artist in history was more involved in the appearance of Rome, as we see it today. Bernini was respected and favored by many Popes during the 17th Century.
