    Interesting Dave, do you know that Bernini is said to be involved in a conspiracy theory about the murder of Maltese artist Gafa, as it is said he was getting better then him ... recently a couple of Gafa's wax bozzettos were discovered in Malta and are the only ones here, these are just restored and are to be displayed in Mdina.

    Have to agree these are must have ... for me, after Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raffaello the masters of renaissance, these two, Bernini and Caravaggio have excelled as the best artists from the new modern period and remain uncontested!

    By the way any of you managed to see Captain Alatriste movie this week, it is a Spanish movie about this flamboyant Tercio captain and the artdirection of this movie was simply breathtaking ... here is a taste from Utube

    Don't know what happened to my Amazon order/dispatch (maybe someone fancied them & gave himself a Christmas present or they got "lost" in the Christmas mayhem) of the mentioned DVD set of three Sad

    Wrote several times to Amazon with no response at all Sad

    So last week I just shoved my middle finger in my a$$ & ordered the set of three AGAIN from play.com for a cheaper deal since play.com is post free (now why didn't I think of play.com in the 1st place Sad )

    Recieved them a while ago cheers
