🖤⚪️🔲Self-Portrait as “La Pietà” by Michelangelo, 1499🔲⚪️🖤 This masterpiece is carved from a single block of marble and is actually the only sculpture Michelangelo ever signed (he did this after rumors swirled that this was by competitor Solari. #petty lol) The Pietà is actually a topic; you can see many depictions of the Pietà, or lamentation of Christ, throughout art history. This particular piece is different in that Michelangelo did not reduce the size of Christ’s body on Mary’s lap, and he also depicted her youthful and in repose, showing the viewer Mary’s inner beauty and moral foundation. The ultimate Woman of strength. 🖤🖤🖤
