Haunting Ladies

I love white marble sculpture, and I even found an old photograph from the early 20th century when photography was incredibly difficult and inexpressibly beautiful.  Most of these ladies are veiled.  While there are legends about veiled virgins, many of these women express a maturity or a sorrow merely through their body language.  The artist in each case captured their spirit in a breathtaking manner.  Just some inspiration for the Sketchbook blog...
