7" Pieta by Michelangelo
Michelangelo's Pieta from Italy!
Beautifully hand-crafted in resin, this Pieta sculpture is a wonderful Italian souvenir and classic reproduction to celebrate of one of the most famous Italian artists and statues of all times... Michelangelo and his exquisite sculpture, the 'Pieta'.
Loneliness and sorrow were Michelangelo's companions in the last years of his life. His younger friends, Vittoria Colonna and Luigi del Riccio were already dead, and in 1556 his faithful servant Urbino died too. In this period, he insistently produced studies and drawings of the Crucifixion and the Lament over the Dead Christ.
They were also the years of his last sculptures, including the Florentine PietÓ, carved for his own tomb. Dissatisfied with his work, Michelangelo attacked the sculpture with a hammer, breaking off a leg and an arm from the figure of Christ and one of the Virgin Mary's hands.
This Pieta sculpture is hand-crafted in Italy from poly-resin and is
7" x 6".
