bernini’s a show off

saint longinus

Bernini sculpted Saint Longinus when he was 32. Thirty-two! Look at that drapery! Good gravy. I can barely make that happen with cotton on a sewing machine, and I am a PRO at a simple gather.

According to medieval folklore, Longinus was a blind Roman who put the spear in Christ’s side, but was healed with his blood. His lance is in one of the four pillars above the altar in Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

Make all of your accomplishments seem feeble when you compare them to Bernini here.
