The Pieta by Michelangelo Buonarroti

Michelangelo Buonarroti, Pieta I remember seeing this at the 1964-65 World's Fair in NYC....we were all on a 'moving sidewalk' so no one would stand there all day....which would have been a lovely thing to do.... I was 10 years old and remember being deeply moved by this.....

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.
