Italy/Switzerland: Lago Maggiore - paulsmit
'Holy giant.'

A child is looking out of the back of a giant. The Colosso di San Carlone, a huge copper statue dating 1698 of a canonized shoot of the mighty Borromeo-family, overlooks the slopes above Lago Maggiore near Arona, blessing the landscape. As an ordinary mortal you can see the world through his holy eyes by climbing a narrow stairway all the way up into his head. Photo Paul Smit.
