Is it a Pig? Is it a Chicken?

No, it's Bernini's Elephant obelisk,  but it was called by those names for many years. Supposedly,  the pig elephant is waving his tail to the side as a rude salute to one of the priest in the monastery who messed with Bernini's design.
All of this is going on behind the Pantheon,  technically a church but in my eyes still a Roman temple of perfect proportions. 

Today was a church day. Carmen gorged on the sight of 3 Carravaggio's, all in one church, and I snuck in some over the top ceilings. Went home early. It's getting time to pack.
