And smoke feels its way in (or out)

That's weird looking. Where and what was it?

I want to know too! Never seen that before ... sculpted stone smoke? Like the music with it too!

That is a tiny part of the monument to Maria Flaminia Odescalchi Chigi, in the church of Santa Maria del Popolo. I suppose it represents incense being burnt in the honour of the deceased.

I had seen something similar by the monument of Maria Lezinscka in the church of Notre Dame du Bonsecours, in Nancy.
