Just another snapshot from our day out last week. A stunning marble statue from around 1860 by Raffaelle Monti, on display at Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, England. This statue is the statue seen in the 2005 movie of Pride and Prejudice.
This is the most beautiful statue I've ever seen. My favourite film is Pride & Prejudice and when I saw this particular statue, I was in awe! I'm glad to stumble upon it like this. Thank you for displaying it!
I first saw this statue in the pride and prejudice movie. I thought it was beautiful then, and I still think it's beautiful now. Just imagining how the artist made the statue sends shivers. The delicacy and creativity to make it is so beyond me. I wish I could see it in person. You're very lucky.
Aw I'm so jealous that is one of my favourite statues ever, I spazzed out when I saw it and Pride and Prejudice, people jut stared lol. The way he did the veil is just amazing I can't imagine the amount of work he put into it
Yeah, seriously! What I find so amazing about this peice is not just the illusion of drapery, but the illusion of the gauze veil. The fact that, like with a real translucent veil, you can see the face underneath.
What the eff? H-how is that level of realism possible?! This is breathtaking, honestly. It really makes me admire what some people are capable of. Thank you for posting this shot and providing the artists' name!
