The theme is of Northern origin, popular by that time in France but not yet in Italy. The statue is one of the most highly finished works by Michelangelo.

      "Pietà" (1499) Michelangelo. Saint Peter's Basilica, Vatican City, Rome, Italy. It is the 1st of a number of works of the same theme by the artist. The statue was commissioned for the French cardinal Jean de Billheres. The sculpture, in Carrara marble, was made for the cardinal's funeral monument, but was moved to its current location, the first chapel as one enters the basilica. It is the only piece Michelangelo ever signed & balances Renaissance ideals of classical beauty with naturalism.
