Galleria Borghese

We actually made 2 trips down to the Galleria Borghese, a boutique museum featuring the incredible personal collection of the Borghese family. The first trip, it was closed because of snow. So if you can't see the great sculpture, then you make it!

 We slipped and slid all the way through the gardens and finally made it to the CLOSED museum!
 The poor lemons were holding on, but shivering.
So, let's make this an interactive museum experience! Roll the snow...
 Sculpt the oddly shaped snowballs that the very wet snow caused...
 And you have a snow woman! The button eyes and carrot nose were given to use by a roman gentleman who saw us building a snowman. The leaves in her hair make her "roman".
I don't know? Do you think we are the next Bernini?

  1. I think it's adorable. And I love the thought of the Roman gentleman who facilitated your art. Was he your patron?
