My favorite pictures of the weekend were, as usual, the unexpected ones. I have no idea what this statue is, who created it, when it was created, or whether it's famous. I can't find it on-line and I don't think there were any signs near it. But I walked by a run-of-the-mill obelisk near the Spanish Steps that has 4 statues around it. One of them caught my eye.
I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure that the horns or rays of light emanating from the figure's head, and the parchment the figure holds with what is clearly Hebrew text written on it, must mean that the figure is Moses. I totally luv finding images of Moses in European art! Everything I see on-line regarding Moses in Rome is about Michelangelo's famous Moses in the San Pietro in Vicoli church in the Monti neighborhood. But this one is different and pretty cool.
