    Comments: Dawn is the female book-end,in front of Lorenzo De Medici's tomb.Like Night,she is un a reclining
    position.Her facial expression is hard to read.
    Her body seems to be in a languid mode,as though
    she is debating on whether to get up,or sleep
    a bit longer.

    Comments: At first sight, I mistook this statue for the statue of Night at the foot of the tomb of Giuliano de' Medici. Michelangelo Made several differences between the two tombs concerning expression and body language, however, his lack of sympathy for the female form is quite apparent in both.
