Michelangelo’s Pieta (Vatican City)

Italy- Rome- Vatican City- Michelangelo's Pieta03.31.2013- In honor of Easter and our new Pope, I thought I’d post a photo from the Vatican.  I was going to opt for a more beautiful one of St. Peter’s, but this one (despite the lighting issues from it being behind bullet proof glass–thank the unbalanced person who took a hammer to it a few years back) seemed most appropriate for the occasion.  Regardless of your religion (I have visited Jewish Temples, Mosques, Buddhist Temples, and more Christian denominations of churches than I can name and respect every one of them), I think anyone can appreciate the true art that went into making such a life-like sculpture out of marble.
