Michelangelo's Pieta en el museo del duomo- one of my favorite museums in Florence.

Michelangelo's Pieta- this is actually the most beautiful peice of artwork i have ever seen. i cannot get over how realistic and amazing this is.

Pieta, Michelangelo. So lovely. On May 21, 1972, a mentally disturbed man walked into the chapel and attacked the sculpture with a geologist's hammer while shouting "I am Jesus Christ." Onlookers took many of the pieces of marble that flew off. Later, some pieces were returned, but many were not, including Mary's nose, which had to be reconstructed from a block cut out of her back.

Michelangelo's "La Pieta". I think this is so beautiful and to think that it emerged from a block of marble is amazing. I have had a museum-quality replica of the Pieta's face (from the Metropolitan Museum of Art) hanging on my wall for about 30 years. ~Skye

Pieta, Michelangelo, 1498/99, Rome, St Pieter | Maria (=Pieta) met van kruis gehaalde Jesus, gezicht Maria bijna geabstraheerd/algemeen (teken heiligheid op voorhoofd, subtiel) treurige vrouw; benen van Jesus wel heel echt => creëert spanning (2 technieken) allg. beeld -> afstand & gedetailleerd beeld | => geen realistisch beeld, maar complex en meerdere lagen, diepere ervaring van dood & treurnis

Pietà - would LOVE to see this in real, it must be AWESOME

Sixtinische Kapelle, Michelangelo, Jüngstes Gericht, Verdammter (Last Judgment, damned man) by HEN-Magonza, via Flickr

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. A monkey, only partially carved, grasps his left shin, representing either art as mere "aping" (mimesis) or suggesting earthly passions. The artist and work were influenced by the late BC Rhodian sculpture Laocoön and His Sons.

Ponte Sant'Angelo, Rome | ~ Michelangelo : "I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."
