Located in front of the Rafael Hotel just off the Country Club Plaza, the Boy with Thorn sculpture is an exact replica of the same statue in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.

  1. Very interesting! I’ve never noticed this sculpture before, nor did I see it in the Uffizi Gallery when we were there last year. I’m going to have to go check it out sometime.
