Forum Statues

Day 7.

Today we went on a sightseeing tour of the Palatino and Roman Forum with the whole entire group. We were able to walk around, take in the sights and sketch a little bit too. One of my favorite parts of the the tour was this garden of statues...statue garden? It was a large square garden with pretty lush grass and roses with a perimeter of these beautiful statues. Most of the statues had parts missing, hands, arms and sometimes whole faces. One of the most beautiful things about these statues is the fabric they are draped in, how such movement can be captured in stone. These were mostly intact and I was very happy to observe and of course take lots of pictures.
