Victory


For this Saturday, here’s a pic of a detail of the Victory Monument on Tonale Pass (Italy).

A lovely old photograph, which shows how post-war artists mixed several styles and symbols: the Antiquity, with the female allegory of Victory, the Christian one, with the cross on the column, and the modernity of the Adrian helmet.
