Marble Torso Study #2 - Phantom of Liberty

I find this work one of the most intriguing pieces in the St. Louis Art Museum.  It just dawned on me that I've been admiring this statue for more than 50 years, making it perhaps my oldest friend!  Nikon D100, ISO 800, 50mm, f/1.8 @ 1/80s.  Cropped and color corrected in Lightroom 2.

beautiful light and texture. the short depth of field works well here.

Isn't it amazing to make drapery out of stone?
