Nice--great lighting. Love those eyes.

Thanks, this scene made a Renaissance still life that I really liked. The whole collection -- ancient satyr and funerary urn, Renaissance tapestries and columns -- is from the 19th century Ludovisi Gallery. I think it's a particularly lively and lovely set of old masterpieces.
