The statues shown below were taken outside the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, one of the most famous art galleries in the world. Within the walls of the courtyard, there are 28 male statues of famous figures from the worlds of politics, science, art, literature, the judiciary and also religious figures. The sculptures are amazing and I love the intricate sculpted details of each piece.
Here are some fine examples of statues built in honour of these great individuals.
Intricately...built... :) Hmm...however I don't know any of them.ReplyDelete

Uffizi Gallery is a wonderful place I always return to when I visit Florence. I love the very old paintings and sculptures. Your photos are very detailed.ReplyDelete
Attention to detail is awesome and that's what makes these statues standout. Did you photography all 28 statues or just these 6?.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing…always enjoyed!ReplyDelete
I hope you will show other statues too.
Thanks for your kind comments and for appreciating my photos everyone.ReplyDelete
Mariuca, Windsmoke, Olga,
Due to the large crowds everywhere, I didn't manage to capture all 28 statues. We didn’t anticipate such a massive crowd at the museum too. We arrived at the museum only to discover the tickets had been sold out for the day and was already selling tickets for the next day. :(
have a wonderful weekend.
Great choice for the photohunt this week. Beautiful sculptures.ReplyDelete
So... are there any female statues to go with the 28 male ones? Have a feeling the answer's no... ;SReplyDelete
Phew lucky these men were not like your earlier 6 men in their birthday suit looking down searching for penny haha. Great pixz tQ.ReplyDelete
Beautiful statues. Happy hunting.ReplyDelete
