Artist's Description


No visit to Rome would be complete without a visit to the Vatican to view its magnificent art treasures. The frescoes alone will keep you entertained with their beauty for hours on end.
The Vatican Museums’ origin can be traced back to an inspiration by a Pope with the help of two artists from a single sculpture. The sculpture, Laocoön and His Sons, was discovered in a vineyard near Santa Maria Maggiore in 1506. At the request of Pope Julius II, Michelangelo Buonarroti and Giuliano da Sangallo viewed the work and recommended that the pope acquire it. Julius II placed this piece with a group of marble sculptures and with that, The Vatican Museums were born. The Vatican Museums house collections acquired by the popes over the centuries and consist of over twenty five galleries, chapels and rooms.
This digitally altered artwork is derived from a photograph taken March 7, 2009 during a tour of Western Europe.
