Michaelangl Bueonarotti sculpture 1499. Known as Michelangelo's Pieta. "Pieta" means "pity" or "compassion". This work shows Jesus' mother Mary holding him in her arms after He has been removed from the Cross. The sculpture is displayed in St. Pete's Basilica in Vatican City. I was fortunate enough to see it in person.
