Veiled Christ, Naples

It is a must see when in Naples, Italy. The capella Sansevero, a little chapel with incredible sculptures by Guiseppe Sanmartino. Its in a very obscure area in old Naples but is worth the trouble to hunt it down. In the center of the exhibition hall is this sculpture of Christ with a marble veil over it. It is so realistic that you feel you can almost lift that veil off. We were not allowed to take any pictures but as we left the chapel, there was this poster at the entrance and I snapped this photo. But I was yelled at by this over zealous attendant!
