Giuseppe Moscati's statue

In the church of Gesù Nuovo in Naples, on the right side of Giuseppe Moscati's tomb there is a bronze statue of the Saint by Italian sculptor Pieluigi Sopelsa1. The statue represents Moscati in his medical suit: he wears the white coat and has the stethoscope hanging from the neck. His hands are very shiny compared to the rest of the body, because people usually touch and kiss them.
