When I first saw this sculpture, I was in awe. The Hellenistic style is so dramatic that the artistic ability is even more amazing. Before this trip I was in AP Latin and was translating the Aeneid. My Latin teacher had shown us the sculpture in class and it was rather remarkable. But in person, it was really a moment of amazement. I did not take pictures in the churches during this trip. I carried this habit into the Vatican, but once I saw Laocoon that habit went out the window. After that, I captured all the Roman sculpture that were in the Vatican museum.
