Bernini's elephant obelisk isn't always noticed the first time around, but here you can see one of Rome's eleven Egyptian obelisks, set in the back of an elephant no less. The elephant is said to be turning its back on Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, the Dominican church on the piazza, as a silent protest against the harsh policies of the friars.Recommended for:
