The Carvings of Maria

Here's a photo taken in Boston this past fall.
The gondolas were out of the water, enjoying a few more days of sunshine before winter.
Joe, Steve, and the staff of Gondola di Venezia made sure to get both gondolas into their winter shelter before the snow began to fall.
This is the reverse angle of the photo in my post "Boston Beauties"

The gondola in the foreground is the "Maria" - one of the only Wedding Gondolas in the US, built in the Squero Bonaldo by Thom Price.
I've always loved those carvings, and the way they catch the eye.
Behind her is the "Firenze".  Both boats were shipped in from Venezia and have been expertly cared for in Boston.
