Thursday Challenge—"broken"

Various parts of the head, arms, and legs
of the Colossus of Constantine (c. 280–387)
can be seen in the courtyard of the Capitoline
Museum in Rome.  Those body parts were
carved of marble; the rest had a brick core and
wooden framework (possibly clad in 
bronze) that didn't survive +/- 17 centuries.  
Still, I'm grateful to be able to see 
what's left of this once-40-foot-tall statue.
