Il Ratto di Proserpina (Gian Lorenzo Bernini), 1621/22

(…) the group shows Pluto taking a fast and powerful stride and grasping Proserpina, from the front he appears triumphantly bearing his trophy in his arms; from the right one sees Proserpina’s tears as she prays to heaven, the wind blowing her hair, as the guardian of Hades, the three-headed dog, barks. Various moments of the story are thus summed up in a single sculpture.

This is no photo or painting, this is a fucking big marble sculpture(!).
