Greek Sculptures, Chatsworth, and Pride & Prejudice

Okay so I'm really obsessed with Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice. Along with reading the book, I've watch the movie at least 12 times. There's one part in the movie where Elizabeth walks around Darcy's estate and views his sculpture collection. When we talked about Greek art in class this week, I immediately thought of this one sculpture.

I THINK IT'S SO COOL. How do they get the face to look like that under the veil? Yeah it's kinda creepy, but it's solid art.Anyway, I did a little research on the artwork (specifically Greek sculptures) found at Chatsworth, and this is what I came up with. There's also a great sculpture of Achilles.
