Michelangelo’s Pieta is a very famous religious art sculpture. The 1498 Michelangelo Pieta marble statue was created for St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. It is by far Michelangelo’s most pathetic work and is undoubtedly his best-known. Michelangelo, 23, was commissioned by French Cardinal Jean De Lagola. Make a marble statue of the Holy Mother and the Pitiful Child. Michelangelo spent two years between 1498 and 1499 on this magnificent sculpture. As a work of his youth, this Pieta already shows the magnificence of his sculpture.
The vertical Madonna and the horizontal child form a perfectly balanced pyramid due to the large garments of the Virgin. The dead Jesus lay relaxed in his mother’s arms. His mother was astonishingly young, almost unlike his mother. In this way, he portrays the sanctity of the Virgin unlike any other. Michelangelo created a work of absolute perfection. The beauty of the body of Christ and the beauty of the face of the Virgin reflect the divine light. But the pain was there, and the Virgin was full of pain. But she looked helplessly, even tenderly, towards her son as he lay in her arms. We also named it “Michelangelo sculpture of Mary holding Jesus“.
