This is one of ten Angel statues adorning the Ponte Sant'Angelo (once the Aelian Bridge or Pons Aelius, meaning the Bridge of Hadrian) in Rome. It was sculpted by Lazzaro Morelli and on its base you can read the inscription "In flagella paratus sum", a latin sentence meaning "I am ready for the whip".
