Advent IV: Wednesday - Outdoor Sculpture in Rome

Bocca della Verità - Mouth of Truth
Probably a drain cover (1300 kg) from the nearby Temple of Hercules Invictus. Today it is on the porch of the Basilica Santa Maria in Cosmedin and is popular with tourists because it was featured in the film "Roman Holiday" with Audrey Hepburn and Richard Peck.
