First Sunday of Advent: Outdoor Sculpture in Rome

This is the 10th year that I am creating a Roman Advent Calendar. During these years I have enjoyed sharing windows, doors, gates, and stairs of Rome. I have also presented angels, modern churches, horses, fountains and street art. This year my Advent Calendar will have examples of outdoor sculpture in the city of Rome. (Note: The postings this year will not include angels, fountains or horses because that have been included in previous years.)

I begin with the legendary founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus,  being nursed by a she-wolf. Their images can be found all over Rome.
