This Statue Feels Your Pain.
I stared and stared at this sculpture in the Vatican Museums. I couldn't figure out if I'd seen it before--maybe in an art history text book?--or if I was just fooling myself. And then it came to me: this statue bears a striking resemblance to the 42nd president of the United States.

Vatican Museum - Vatican, Italy
You know, when you are inside an art museum, you are busy consumed by the surroundings. When you are in the Vatican Museum, take a peek outside of the window sometimes, you might get a different feel. Plus, at the right location, you can see the celling of the sistine chapel and the top of St. Peter's at the same time.
