Many thanks to everyone who views my work. Comment if you wish, but I’m afraid I am unable to respond or reciprocate at this moment in time. I will always try to repay a favourite though.

From virtual tourist

This unusual sculpture called “Donna alla finestra” (Woman at the window) can be seen in Via del Comune, which is part of Nobile Contrada del Bruco. The sculpture from 1995 is work of Sienese artist Pierluigi Olla.
Each of 17 contrade is named after an animal or symbol and each one has a long history. Bruco is caterpillar.
Nobile Contrada del Bruco has always been associated with the silk trade and on the sculpture can be seen a rose hanging by a thread on which there is a crowned caterpillar, the symbol of the Contrada del Bruco.
