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.
