The Rape of the Sabine Women is a masterpiece by Giambologna, the official #sculptor of the #Medici family, who commissioned this imposing statue that still stands in the Loggia della Signoria. The work, which reaches 4 meters in height, was sculpted by the artist from a single block of marble in 1583.
