  • One of the 13 ancient obelisks of Rome, located in the piazza della Minerva. It was arranged by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, who set up on an elephant's back. The model was offered by a baby elephant born in homage to the City by Queen Christina of Sweden converted to Catholicism, but follows an iconography derived from Hypnerotomachia Poliphili

  • Very weird and very funny :) i don't really know how to describe this place. You can seat next to it to watch it and try to understand. We didn't succeeded but you can try!
  • This is a fantastic specimen of Egyptian architecture. It depicts an obelisk on top of an elephant.
  • Had a great view of this pretty statue from the window of my suite. A great thing to wake up to each morning.
  • A fantastic land mark set in a beautiful square. Well worth seeing!
  • It's a fun little Bernini sculpture with found-object obelisk assemblage. Kind of surrealist for the 17th century, in my opinion. It's fanciful and very photogenic.
