More Rome pictures

Some more Rome photos to go with below post:
Oculus of the Pantheon's dome

Hallway in the Vatican Museum - a feast for the eyes, and we walked away well gorged

Mosaic floor in the Vatican Museum

Head of the Apollo Belvedere statue, a Roman copy of an earlier Greek bronze - when this statue was rediscovered during the Renaissance, it was thought of as the greatest, ancient sculpture and the ideal form of beauty

Closeup of lambs in Peter Wenzel's amazing painting, "Adam & Eve in Earthly Paradise," one of my favorites

  1. Spectacular pictures! Rome is one of my top countries where I always would love to visit, because its steep in such a mythological history.
