Everywhere you look in Roman statuary, you can’t help but notice how strength is optimistically portrayed, as seen by this image of a female sculpture from the Vatican Museum. To visually challenge that ideal, I have incorporated an image of a relief on a tombstone, in the Protestant Cemetery in Rome. The relief depicts a powerful scene of a woman being led away by an angel, while the husband and four children grieve.
