Actually, that's not funny. But I have been struggling for some time to figure out just how to post photos (I know, a child could do this. Yet, still I struggle.)
If this photo actually appears, it is of the Laocoon Group, and I took the photo in January at the Vatican Museums in Rome, when I had the Museums almost to myself. I find it really beautiful and moving.
The statue of Laocoon and his sons, is a monumental marble sculpture that is attributed by the Roman author Pliny the Elder to three sculptors from the island of Rhodes: Agesander, Athenodoros and Polydorus. It shows the Trojan priest Laocoon and his sons Antiphantes and Thymbraeus being strangled by sea serpents.
Laocoon was killed after he attempted to expose the Greek's ruse of the Trojan Horse, by striking it with a spear. The snakes were apparently sent either by Apollo or Poseidon as punishment, and were interpreted by the Trojans as proof that the horse was a sacred object. They were clearly very wrong.
Various dates have been suggested for the statue, ranging from about 160 BC to about 20 BC.
It's believed that the statue was probably commissioned for the home of a wealthy Roman, and it was unearthed in 1506 near the site of the Golden House of the Emperor Nero (who reigned from 54 to 68 AD), and it is possible that the statue belonged to Nero himself.
It was acquired by Pope Julius II soon after its discovery and was placed in the Belvedere Garden at the Vatican, which is now part of the museums.
