Flight from Pompeii, Ballarat

Flight from Pompeii, Botanical Gardens, Ballarat, Victoria May 2017. 

Designed by Professor Carlo Benzoni and carved by Charles Francis Summers, the statue was commissioned from Italy and is the centrepiece of the Ballarat Botanical Gardens statuary. Nearly 150 years later, it remains one of the most visually stunning and peaceful areas in area and is a favourite place of mine to go when I need to still my mind.
