As the sun dipped near the horizon, I spotted this lovely statue near the main entrance of Paestum’s historical site (near Pompeii), originally founded by the Greeks in the 6th century B.C.

Thank you Maura for the spotlight.

    LOL, Maura. I thought of you when I saw her, as well as my sister Lorna. No doubt she'd love to own this lovely lady. Thanks so much for the spotlight. And a big thank you to everyone else. Always appreciate your favs and comments.

    What a lovely sculpture! So beautiful in its antiquity. The late afternoon sun turns it to gold. Beautiful capture, Deb.
