Finally posting my late entry, although it is only Saturday afternoon here, so technically, I am not that late. This was a tough theme. After hunting through all of my photos, I finally found two that would fit the theme.
The first is a photo of La Bocca della Verità (The Mouth of Truth). I took this photo in the portico of the church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin in Rome.
The second photo is of a chipped bell. I posted this photo once before as part of my views from the roof of the Basilica di San Pietro post back in November 2007. I tried to find out more information about this bell, but came up empty handed. The number 1859 is carved into the wood. Anyone know the history of this bell?
