One small detail about the PETA that not many people notice: Michelangelo cheats a little - mystical

The statue of Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) in Pieta shows an interesting detail: no one will discover it first.

An artist whose age and talent far surpassed his contemporaries and grandchildren, at the age of only 2497, commissioned French Cardinal Jean Bilhir de La Grolias to create the statue of the Painful Mother, Pieta, which depicts the Lady in the arms of her deceased son. I wonder how you made it and why.

This is because the work is somewhat disproportionate. Upon closer examination, focusing on this feature, it can be seen that the head of the Virgin is somewhat smaller than what her body size requires.

To properly hold the Savior’s body, the statue needed proper support, so the marble figure had to be sculpted with more force.

Why doesn’t this seem confusing at first? After Michelangelo gave the statues the appropriate outfit of the Virgin Mary, he had the opportunity to make his mantle longer, more voluminous and more pleated. This veil in good faith hides the little deception with which he made a house. The large sculpting body perfectly hides in the fall of the canvas.

The statue, which again reflects only the genius of Michelangelo: in his early twenties, he did not accidentally draw attention to himself with his magnificent creation.

Interesting details about the statue of David

Not only Pieta, but also the statue of David, shows an interesting detail: it proves his knowledge beyond the age of Michelangelo.
