Nativity Façade: Herod's Soldier Slaying Baby

Nativity Façade: Soldier Slaying Baby  [enlarge]

This sculptoric group or scene on the Nativity Façade at La Sagrada Familia is by far one of the most sinister and dramatic representations I have ever seen in sculpture: Herod's soldiers at Bethlehem are sent to kill all boys under the age of 2.
