Damned Soul (Latin: Anima Dannata) is a marble sculpture bust by the Italian artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini. According to Rudolf Wittkower, the sculpture is in the Palazzo di Spagna in Rome. This may well be what is known today as the Palzzo Monaldeschi.[1]

There is a bronze copy, executed by Massimiliano Soldani-Benzi some time between 1705 and 1707, in the Liechtenstein Collection.
