Apollo and Daphne by Bernini is a life sized marble sculpture made for Cardinal Scipione depicting the nymph Daphne being turned into a laurel tree, pursued in vain by Apollo God of the sun. I chose this scukpture because I love the detail and emotions being expressed through his work as well as the metamorphosis that is occurring as the woman is transforming into a tree.
