The depiction of the overly familiar theme of Madonna with the baby Jesus is characterized by Mary's introverted expression. Her face is remarkably similar to that of the Mary in The Pieta which was sculpted five years earlier. The assumption is therefore that Michelangelo used the same life model. The movement of the child, with its hair sculpted away from the body of the statue and Mary's robe herald the transition to the Baroque period which emphasized dynamism and expression.

Made from resin, white with subtle grey veins to evoke marble, description card included.

Size: 9"H x 4.25"W x 3.5"D

Item Type: Michelangelo Statue

Material: resin with subtle grey veins

Michelangelo, Italian Master (1475-1564):
As an artist, sculptor, architect and poet Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was the archetype of the Renaissance artist, the universal man (uomo universale).

As the son of the mayor of Caprese he spent all his time drawing, much to his father's chagrin. His mother died young and he was raised by a nanny who was married to a sculptor. Michelangelo proved to be so talented that as a fifteen year old he was noticed by the powerful artists' patron Lorenzo de Medici. His creativity and work ethic were unstoppable. He sculpted two of his most famous works before he was 30: The Pieta and the colossal sculpture of David.

A number of years later, he had made such a name for himself that Pope Julius II asked him to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
