This is an exact casting of a treasure of Western Civilization, Michelangelo’s masterwork, the Pietà from St. Peter's Pieta. The sculpture of the Virgin Mary which graces the Vatican is considered Michelangelo's most perfect work and is the only sculpture he ever signed. This "Madonna Della Pietà" bust was commissioned through the Vatican and cast from a plaster relief, done when the original in Rome was repaired in the 1970s.
Created utilizing the "lost wax" casting technique, a method believed to be over 5,000 years old, this artwork continues an artisan tradition almost as old as civilization itself. The work includes the original carrying case and all the original paperwork. The creation of this casting was deemed significant enough that it was covered by the NYTimes Arts in America.
