Pieta garden sculpture by artist Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) in St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican, Rome.
Only 23 when he sculpted this breathtaking work of art, Michelangelo (1475-1564) required two years, a rough block of marble hauled out of the quarries at Carrara, Italy, and a huge talent to carve his “Pieta.” Our Italian-inspired figurine is painstakingly rendered, from the folds of their garments to the peaceful face of the Madonna. Our scaled is cast in fine-quality, bonded natural marble and resin for proud display in home garden. Michelangelo was an Italian Renaissance painter, sculptor, architect, poet and engineer whose name is immediately recognized as an art master. Along with his contemporary and rival Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo is considered an archetype of the Renaissance Man because of his mastery of different skills.
