  • The Obelisk of Minerva has as its base a little elephant and is located in the square opposite the Church of Santa Maria. The meanings are multiple, overall is an architectural element that enriches the whole square

  • Though small, this Obelisk draws attention by the elephant by Bernini that sustains it. In front of the Church of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, impossible not to see him

  • 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.
