These girls in Assisi seem to be oblivious to the gruesome carnivorous activity going on beside them.

The old woman in the background twice approached me for spare change -- perhaps all tourists look alike to her -- my Italian was pretty bad but I think it had something to do with helping her son, who by my reckoning must have been in his thirties, certainly old enough to do his own begging.

For more monochrome by a variety of photographers, visit Black and White Weekend.

It's certainly a strange subject for a statue, but cleverly carved. The girls almost look as if they're waiting to be the next snack ;)

What an absolutely extraordinary statue!

I suppose the person (child?) is being eaten rather than proving their confidence in the monster - head in, head out?
