Children in Rome on a field trip to the Colosseum
Children in Delhi on a field trip to the Red Fort
Our future imbibing our history
Did Michelangelo, Botticelli, da Vinci, Donatello traverse these streets?
But I like to think otherwise
And that I am retracing history
Wow! What a feeling!
The Stench of Fear
The roar of wild beasts
The bloodthirsty galleries
The whites of eyes
The stench of fear
The ruthlessness of mankind
History repeats itself
What has changed
Is the method of sin
Pietà (1498-1499) by Michelangelo Buonarotti, housed in St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City.
Don’t be surprised if your eyes well up. Being in it’s presence is an intensely emotional experience.
I was told that Michelangelo was just 24 when he completed this masterpiece. Does that make it a case of divine intervention? We shall never know but can for sure presume.
Also this happens to be the only work that Michelangelo ever signed.
