Day 287 of 365

The "Veiled Vestal Virgin" by Raffaelle Monti at Chatsworth House. She is sculpted from one piece of marble and is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. It really is hard to believe that her face isn't actually covered with a veil.
Keira Knightly gets to stare at her in the sculpture room in the film Pride & Prejudice which was filmed at Chatsworth although now she has been moved to the wooden room.

  4. It is a lovely place, we've been quite a few times as it's just up the M1 from us. Hoping to go again when they decorate for Christmas.
