Pietà

>> Friday, March 6, 2009

When I went to St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, I saw the famous creation of Michelangelo, the Pietà. Pietà is an Italian word which means pity. This work of Michelangelo shows how Virgin Mary cradling the dead body of Jesus. Virgin Mary here is unusually youthful, and in repose, rather than the older, sorrowing Mary which was seen in most earlier pietà statues. This makes the interpretation of Michelangelo different from the others.
