This gorgeous photo of Bernini’s The Ecstasy of St. Theresa
transforms the sculpture into something I’ve never seen,
not even while standing in front of it.

Of course, maybe I need it more now, not being in Rome.

No, what it is is the complete and pensive and exciting quiet
of looking at it like this.

The quiet contrast against her position shocks.

The darkness is deathly.
