    Comments: The sculpture of Giuliano de'Medici,is that of a handsome,elegant man.His head is tilted in profile,showing a long,strong neck,and muscular body.His visible eye is an empty socket.The facial expression is somewhat pensive,though the body is relaxed.He seems to be taking a respite from his military duties.
    The sculpture is displayed before a single de Medici tomb.The statues of Dusk and Dawn are beneath it.
    There is a General's baton across Giuliano's lap,showing a high military rank.

    Comments: I would like to correct a remark I made about
    Giuliano's tomb above.The statues on either side
    of the table,before his tomb,are of Night and Day,
    NOT of Dusk and Dawn.

    Comments: Giuliano de' Medici is depicted as a man of great strength and power in Michelangelo's Tomb of Duke Giuliano. The Medici family played a major role in Michelangelo's success as an artist.
