Saint Helena - Bolgi

We just learned about the Baroque sculpture of Saint Andrew by Fran├žois Duquesnoy.

Another baroque sculpture is Saint Helena by Andrea Bolgi in 1639 in Rome.

Bolgi made the sculpture for Saint Peter's Basilica, which is a really big church in Rome.
He was a student of Bernini, and he was invited to help create this statue as one of many others in the big church.
