Found these by accident when out wandering the streets of Viterbo. Shame the graffiti vandals have got to them. Not really my scene but something different to view..

Having wandered the old town within the walls our exit from Viterbo through in this 'curved ball'. Really striking and interesting sculptures rising from the ground. Certainly make some interesting photos.

Trying to get out of the walled area we drove past this. Totally unexpected and a big surprise. Didn't find out until afterward what it is and that is made by a nice fellow New Jersey boy!

We travelled to Viterbo, Italy to see the Palace of the Popes. In the end it was perched up on the hill and it looked a steep climb. However there was an interesting statue in the open grass area down from the Car Park. It was a statue of a silver giant trying to break free of the earth where... More
