San Pietro in Vincoli: Moses by Michelangelo (1989, 1995) My head goes to about his chest. He has horns because in those day the Bible was misinterrepted. They read Moses had 'horns' of light but it really says 'rays' of light. ANd this church also has a set of chains that supposedly were worn by St. Peter. Hence, the name of the church is really "St. Peter in chains."

Rom, Piazza di San Pietro in Vincoli, San Pietro in Vincoli, Moses von Michaelangelo

Michelangelo's depiction of the Madonna and Child differs significantly from earlier representations of the same subject. Jesus stands upright, almost unsupported, only loosely restrained by Mary's left hand, and appears to be about to step away from his mother and into the world. Meanwhile, Mary does not cling to her son or even look at him, but gazes down and away, as if she knows already what is to be her son's fate.

Study for one of the Sibyls on the Sistine Chapel - Michelangelo I remember having to redraw this for one of my homework assignments for one of my college art classes!

Angels holding a painting of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Child Jesus. Rome, near Piazza Navona.

Michaelangelo: I love the detail of each muscle as if they were strained while the figure was hunched over. Michaelangelo may be well known, but he is still one of my favorite high rennaissance sculptors.
