Florence: Neptune's fountain

This is Neptune, the god of water and the sea, form the "Fountain of Neptune" in Florence, Italy.
Te fountain is situated on the Piazza della Signoria, in front of the Palazzo Vecchio.

For this image I've chosen a sepia rendering. I've also darkened the image and enhanced the contrast to emphasize the muscles and the shape of the body.
I love the way in which the shadows make the masterwork of the artist stand out.
