"The Ecstasy of Saint Theresa" by Bernini, at Santa Maria della Vittoria church in Rome. This is actually placed too high in the church to photograph well, or even to see well - this isn't my photo, and must have been taken from a lift or a very tall tripod. Like another Bernini, "The Blessed Ludovica Albertoni" (look around, I do have photos of it), many people are prone to mistake her divine ecstasy for one rather more earthly.
