A photographic rendering of two famous sculptures at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London—
(Left) Pluto carrying off Proserpina (about 1565 by Vincenzo de’ Rossi). This dramatic sculpture shows Pluto, the king of the underworld, carrying off Proserpina with whom he had fallen in love.
(Right) Samson slaying a Philistine (about 1562 by Giambologna). The motif of the piece is taken from an episode described in the Bible, in the Old Testament’s Book of Judges.
