A piece of artwork in a quadrangle in the centre of the Vatican City.

Sorry but I have not been able to identify the artist.

Quite a large piece, it must be at least 3 metres tall.
Took one or two shots, but edited this so that the sphere was the dominant part of the composition.

Thanks for looking.

this circle is from Arnaldo Pomodoro in that place since 1990.
the choice for your composition is plaisant and give to smile with such small sit in the background! and you cann have a lot of choice to make an original point of view because we cann't go just near it...

Looking at the bench, as reference, it shows how big this thing is. I like the off center placement giving the viewer a peek of the building in the background. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hello Jean,
I like this shot...the sphere is very interesting and the presentation with the building in the background makes this very appealing. Well composed and thank you for sharing.

bonjour Jean
Le Vatican, the place where so many people pray, and strangely the globe seems to reflect the picture of a human world burning and being destroyed as a reference to what is happening in Middle East...
Good POV and result

Hi Jean
