    Comments: I am always in awe of the skill and sensitivity it takes to create a work this exceptional. You feel as if you could reach out and touch the limp body, or maybe cradle Mary as gently as she cradles her Son. You can almost feel the different textures of flesh and fabric on the cold cold stone. Simply amazing, and awe inspiring.

    Comments: This sculpture always remind me the scene in the hospital, when my sister cradled her son who suffered from Cerebal Palsy, one day before he passed away. There are so much emotion in it that I always tear when I see this sculpture.

    Comments: There is such a look of pathos,on Mary's
    youthful, vulnerable features.I am always struck by how Michelangelo always portrays the Virgin
    as barely more than a girl.
    At the same time,the look on her face,is that of a devastated Mother mourning her beloved son.It
    is heart-breaking.Iwant to look inside her mind,and read her thoughts.Does She feel Christ is gone forever,or does she already know,He wlii
    be ressurected?
    This is an incredibly beautiful,astounding

    I am a Art History major and I am finally going to Rome to see the Pieta at St. Peter's in early October. I know that I will admire and appreciate it very much. I have only seen pictures so to see the real thing will be very exciting for me.

    Comments: The originality of this piece of art lies in the fact that Jesus Christ is a man,and not a baby, like all artists have accustomed us to.I have always said that I will not die until I have seen Italy and Pieta.

    Comments: For centuries people have gazed on this piece of work in awe while few realize the true pride that Michelangelo felt for this particular statue. It is a finished piece of work, a rarity for Michelangelo, and most importantly, the only work that Michelangelo signed. His name can be seen in the sash that crosses the Madonna's chest.
