Waiting For Spring by intao Waiting For Spring by intao
"There is a flame within me that has stood
Unmoved, untroubled through a mist of years,
Knowing nor love nor laughter, hope nor fears,
Nor foolish throb of ill, nor wine of good.
I feel no shadow of the winds that brood,
I hear no whisper of a tide that veers,
I weave no thought of passion, nor of tears,
Unfettered I of time, of habitude.

I know no birth, I know no death that chills;
I fear no fate, nor fashion, cause nor creed,
I shall outdream the slumber of the hills,
I am the bud, the flower, I the seed;

For I do know that in whate'er I see
I am the part, and it the soul of me."

Muirhead, John Spencer, Quiet
Artist: Raffaelo Monti

I've seen Raffaelo's Veiled Lady several times. Each time I see it I'm amazed. :)

It reminds me of a sculpture in similar context found in the lobby of Pemberly, home of Mr. Darcy in the 2005 Pride and Prejudice.

I might sound geeky, but I simply adore the movie!

No it is a sculpture on view at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in Minnesota, photographed under low lighting conditions. Nothing to do with Pride and Predjudice.

There is a sculpture similar to the MIA one in the Chatsworth House, Derbyshire England which must be the one you speak of. :)
