If you’ve read any tourist information about Naples, chances are you’ve seen images and/or information about this Chapel.
The main attraction, and rightly so, is the sculpture il Cristo Velato (the Veiled Christ). Since taking photographs is strictly forbidden, any images I show you have been sourced online.
However, the sculpture that took my attention, and caused me to return today, for an even closer look, is Disinganno (Disillusion).
When you look closely at the net on this figure, you wonder how human hands could possibly create the mesh out of marble.
Do yourself a favour. If you read nothing else today, have a look at this short explanation of the meaning behind the sculpture, and the painstaking work it took its artist to complete. Disillusion
