Palazzo Verità Poeta #2


I cannot keep myself from posting another photo from Palazzo Verità Poeta. 
This is such a fine painting that has recently been restored by our friend Giovanna. It is one of the frescoes on the staircase. At first glance I was struck by the dog and the countryside view. At second glance I noticed the skorpion...

I think the dog's collar is too tight! lol. But it is a beautiful fresco!

You have an eye for detail! I don't think I would ever have seen that scorpion!

Only in Italia! The Palazzo posting yesterday was spectacular. What a stunner - as I said - only in Italia. Love the fresco with the dog not taking his eyes off the scorpion.

Beautiful.
