The Ponte Sant’Angelo, the finest of Rome’s bridges, was built by Hadrian in A.D. 136 to give access to his Mausoleum now the towering Castel Sant’Angelo.Erected in the mid 16th century under Clement VII then Clement IX commissioned Bernini, who was 70, to carve the 10 figures of angels which line the bridge. The angel figures are carrying the instruments of Christ’s passion. This one is carrying Christ’s crown of thorns.
