Pieta

Seeing this exquisite work of absolute beauty in St. Peter's Basilica was a highlight of my trip to Rome - and, traveling off-season that I could get up as close as possible was a huge bonus.  It is deserving of its fame as the most famous and awesome statue in the world: the expression on Mary's face, the perfection of every muscle, vein, and nerve ... Michelangelo was only 24 when he carved his masterpiece - out of one block of marble. It was his only work that he signed (WHICH HE LATER REGRETTED DOING).  Since 1972, it is housed behind bullet-proof glass due to a brutal attack in 1964 which took 10 years to restore.
