franz from Baden, Austria

great pov and colour scheme - looks like a mix of bw and colour!
i suppose the statue has been cut from the rock, but what are those brick-like shapes at the bottom of the statue and behind its head?

@franz: Perhaps, that was part of the repair work in 1966 to correct the earthquake and weathering damage.
