The White Giant.

Later in our night walk, we came by a very crowded piazza with live music. As we made our way across it, we found this beautifully lit statue of Neptune.

Apparently the original dates from the 1500's and is now housed in the National Museum while the copy does dangerous duty out among the boisterous crowds. It has been damaged several times over the years, most recently restored in 2007.
