Slave by Michelangelo. 1513-1516 Paris, Louvre. Did you know: The slave's left wrist is strapped to the back of the neck, and there is a band around his chest.

Her eyes follow us around the room and the warmth of life exudes from beneath her radiant skin. Her expression changes between contentment and deep sadness.
