"The Mouth of the Truth". "La Bocca della Verita", Rome - legend said that if one told a lie with one's hand in the mouth of the sculpture, it would be bitten off. located in the portico of the Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin in Rome,
ok- far too many posted tonight. somehow some more Rome sketches have been scanned. Just for the record I have probably only scanned half of my pages - though the other pages are either of food, maps or still not finished!
