The Cardboard Bernini

Jimmy Grashow was studying sculpture in 1960s Rome when he first saw the city’s famous Trevi Fountain. The fountain was originally designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and the marble horses and gods of the sea tower 85 feet above the crowds of tourists.  Grashow has recreated the massive fountain - in cardboard.
