“Not just a statue a great story by Cellini”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

This sculpture is, to say the least, grissly, especially when seen at night with the great back-lighting they give it, but it is well worth reading Cellini's account of it's creation in his autobiography - it is almost certainly exaggerated, but the guy certainly knew how to tell a story as well as how to sculpt in bronze - and of course in gold!
