THESE ARE SUCH BEAUTIFUL WORKS OF ART THAT EVOKE A REACTION AND ARE EXTREMELY MOVING.
“La Pieta” sculpture
|Dimensions||174 cm × 195 cm (68.5 in × 76.8 in)|
|Location||St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City|
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.
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.
