The original Pieta, which currently resides in St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, is known as one of the greatest masterpieces during the Renaissance Era. In fact it was the only work of art that Michelangelo ever left his personal signature on. Michelangelo’s original work dates all the way back to 1499, making it over five hundred years old! One might not know from looking at it, but the original statue was carved from a SINGLE PIECE of marble.
This exquisite sculpture is reproduced today in 925 silver, featuring the body of Jesus resting in the lap of the Virgin Mary after the savior’s crucifixion. The Virgin Mary is depicted as a young woman to capture her inner beauty and purity, as The Lord Jesus Christ is positioned delicately in her arms.
