Off to Italy in... 3 More Days!

The story behind the picture: I took this photo at the Vatican Museums in Rome last year. The ceilings are so full of beautiful paintings such as this one. I asked one of my Italian friends about this painting because I was very curious and fascinated by it. The lady, surrounded by angels, held a sword in her right hand and a scale in her left.

Lucky for me, my friend Gianluca P. managed to find out for me. The painting's called Justice from the Stanza della Segnatura, Palazzi Pontifici, Vatican. It was painted by Raphael (start: 1509, end: 1511).

I'll be going to Italy again very, very soon. Am so excited!
