• Aeneas and Anchises

      Was carved by Bernini with his father at the age of 15.
    • Apollo and Daphne 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      Close up as twigs and leaves sprout from Daphne's fingers (1623).
    • Apollo and Daphne 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      As Apollo is about to seize Daphne with ill intent, Bernini captures the dramatic moment as Daphne's wish to escape violation shows the moment of her wish being granted as she begins her transformation into the laurel tree.
    • Cardinal Scipione Borghese 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      As sculpted by Bernini in 1632 (for an excellent chronology see Rudolf Wittkower's book on Gian Lorenzo Bernini, pages 275-76).
    • Cardinal Scipione Borghese 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      This, the original, developed a crack in the marble at the forehead which resulted in Borghese demanding a perfect copy for which Bernini obliged. The cardinal paid for one and kept the other.
    • David 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      Bernini again captures the moment when David with his sling encounters the fateful moment with Goliath.
    • David 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      The close up of David's face at this fateful moment shows the intensity of his determination (1623).

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      The villa and park were designed by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew of Paul V, in the early 17th century.
    • Pluto and Proserpina 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      Proserpina's face with open mouth and tears again show Bernini's mastery of his art.
    • Pluto and Proserpina 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
    • Pluto and Proserpina 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
    • Pluto and Proserpina 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      This close up of Pluto's hand on Proserpina's waist and thigh is exemplary of Bernini's ability to make marble to appear as flesh.
    • The Rape of Proserpina 

      Bruggink, Donald J. (Western Theological Seminary (Holland, Michigan), 19)
      Carved by Bernini in 1921.
