And, let's not forget Medusa cursed by Minerva and slain by Perseus. But, I think the most beautiful Bernini's are the Rape of Persephone, Apollo and Daphne and his "self-portrait" as David in the Villa Borghese where unfortunately, photography is not allowed.

For after what I had seen there along with Michelangelo's David and Pietà, surely I had seen the most beautiful art in existence.
