Props to Philip…



Ahem, sorry for going AWOL again. Combination of a few internet problems here, a few days off on holiday and Easter. Anyways, thank you for your patience, and I shall continue to get back on the statue case this week and beyond…

Anyway, this chap is Phillipo IV, who stands at the entrance to one of the many churches in Rome. Indeed, good old Uncle Wikipedia reveals that the church is the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, and the statue is a Mr Philip IV of Spain, who was king of in the 1600s and a benefactor to the church. As ever, it’s much fun to imitate a statue with props.

Wonderful pose, marvelous model, but what a nasty fellow was Phillip of Spain!
