The symbol of Rome, is the statue of a she-wolf milking the two twins Romolo and Remo.
The statue, placed on top of a column, is about 80 cm high, and is near the Campidoglio.
The original is in the Capitolini museum.
Originally believed to be built the 5th century B.C., it was recently dated with the Carbon 14 method, and it came out to be a medieval artwork.

Hi Stefano,I remember these twins from my school days being taught Latin, i think its all i remember.like the tight framing of feeding time, the three colours work well with the outline silhouette dominating.Thanks Tom.

Excellent representation of just the Twins outline to attract the eye's attention. Certainly a famous symbol/legend to the creation of the city of Rome.
Thanks for sharing,
