The Courtland Galley has a tiny reception. One goes off into a small room on the right or heads up the stairs. But in this tiny space are three statues, two of which are of Centaurs. Centaurs are half man and half horse, relate to my sun sign and are well known to be very ill mannered, are usually drunk and love parties. See why I like them? These are known as the Furietti Centaurs, namely Chiron and Pholus. Yes, that Chiron. Both were well known for their hospitality.
A view from the back, very impressive carving, one has to admit.
The staircase up to the upper floors, with the poster for the Michelangelo Dream show. Full slide show here.
