Flickr Friday: Chatsworth - The Veiled Vestal Virgin
If you saw the Keira Knightly version of Pride and Prejudice, you may recognize this as a sculpture in Pemberly but in reality it stands in Chatsworth, a grand home in Derbyshire that may have inspired Jane Austen to write about Darcy's ancestral home.
It is a truly spectacular piece of art - you want to reach out and brush the veil away to see her face, it is so beautifully sculpted.
Someday, I hope to visit this amazing estate in Derbyshire again.
Note: I just had a thought - Have I posted this picture before and YES - this is a repeat post. so now I need to add something fresh to the post. A few more views of the same sculpture gallery in Chatsworth!
