An Angel by Bernardino Ludovisi
One of the two beautiful marble angels by Bernardino Ludovisi (c. 1693-1749), in the church of Sant' Ignazio di Loyola, subtely points to the magnificent altar of St Aloysius Gonzaga (1568-91).
The lily, which the angel holds in his left hand, is a reference to the saint's purity.
