When I first saw this it brought me to tears , it was so life like, the veins and expressions on Jesus and Mary were real. Michelangelo certainly had God’s spirit in him when he created this beautiful moving sculpture.                           9124936_origimages

The painting of the “Descent from the cross” by Van der Weyden and by Hugo van der Goes are remarkable in the way Mary’s pain is depicted with such depth. No doubt, the spirit of God was working through him as well.
