Michelangelo's Pietas (sculptures of & about mourning) - In the Shadow of Leaves
Dappled in light & dark; a place to watch from, think, write, make & show images
Michelangelo's Pietas (sculptures of & about mourning)
The extraordinary Bandini Pietà (aka the Deposition) is in Florence, or there's the much more famous, much earlier, Pietà tucked behind heavy security barriers up towards the doors at the back of St Peter's Basilica in Rome. (There's another, even more extraordinary, fragmentary, late Pietà that you can experience in the Sforza Castle at Milan.)

UPDATE: Anita Roddick Dies
