Cleopatra

 

marble sculpture by William Story

This is my favorite sculpture at the VMFA. I stood in front of her for hours and drew her twice already. The carving is great. You should see her in person. The dress looks like actual fabric. I saw the Cleopatra exhibit at the Franklin Inatitute in Philadelphia a while back. The archaeologists are close to finding her tomb ! And when they dig her up it will be bigger than King Tut !
