As Seen from Below

Earlier this year I posted news and photos of the Lorenzo Quinn’z sculpture at Ca’ Sagredo by Traghetto Santa Sofia. (See “Grand Canal Sea Monster” from May 19, 2017.) When I was in Venice last July, I snuck around the side of the gondoliers’ casotto to snap these pics from underneath the hands. A cheerful gondolier was singing a song while washing up at the hose after his day’s work, and he smiled at me while I apologized for interrupting him.

The hands are wonderfully detailed and lifelike–and huge. Standing under them felt special and somehow charmed.
