Looking down on the tourists

Frank’s theme for this week is ‘sculpture’. I certainly have no shortage of images to choose from to fit in with that, but I decided to go with this close-up from Barzaghi’s  1882 ‘Monument to Nicoló Tommaseo’, who looks down on the passing hordes with faint amusement from his plinth in Campo Santo Stefano in Venice. The detail is extraordinary.
