Opening to the Public November 5
Five hundred years ago Michelangelo unveiled what would come to be regarded as one of the world’s great masterpieces of inspired art and perhaps the most beautiful sculpture ever created. The Pietà was both the consummate expression of Michelangelo’s artistic abilities and an embodiment of the divine inspiration that guided his work.
This famous work of art depicts the body of Jesus on the lap of his mother Mary after the crucifixion. Arte Divine, in partnership with the Patrons of the Arts of the Vatican Museums, has recreated Michelangelo’s masterpiece Pietà in cast marble using a mold derived from the original. This posthumous Pietà is a precise 1:1 casting that is faithful in every detail to Michelangelo’s original.
