"Sacred and Profane Love" by Titian
Baffling art historians for centuries as regards its iconography, this beautiful early work by Titian is one of the treasures of the Borghese Gallery. It was painted in 1514 for the marriage of Niccolò Aurelio (whose coat of arms appears on the sarcophagus-turned-water-trough) and Laura Bagarotto, and most likely represents the bride in some type of allegorical context. Buona visione!
