Bernini turns Marble into flesh!

The mighty Italian sculptor, Bernini (1598–1680) is known for his dramatic swirling sculptures. Notice how the figures have many diagonals, are twisting and overlapping. Those characteristics create the illusion of movement and drama.

Also, take note how the marble is carved to resemble soft flesh or cloth, that "squishes" and "folds".
