    I think that the most beautiful object ever made by the hands of mankind is Michelangelo's Pieta.

    I agree that it's very beautiful.

    Agree that it's beautiful, but Bernini is not to be brushed aside. The man could make marble look like flesh.

    Bernini is considered to be the more skilled sculptor I think. Though I feel Michelangelo communicated emotion and violence almost exceedingly passionately, love his exaggeration, especially in this one: [​IMG]

    Ha! There is that minor yet super creepy detail regarding the fact that the sculpture depicts somebody getting raped...

    IMO the most accessible and best buys in art today is photography.

    It is also a "dying" art, at least so far as gelatin silver printing and large format negatives are concerned.

    Is anyone familiar with this signature? Any ideas about who this "Mason" is? If not, I would like some direction as to where to go to find out. Thanks. [​IMG]

    Did you ever actually stop participating in the forum? Your goodbye thread was blatant false advertising.
