Jan 2014: Ugolino and his sons

Ugolino was an Italian Nobleman and he was mentioned in Dante's divine comedy. As a father myself, this story and this representation hit very close to my heart and mind. Yes, i would have gone mad if I had to face this scenario. The sculptor is obviously brilliant and brings out the madness and the horrible choice in front of the father clearly.
