The Pietà Rondanini: Milan, Italy

The chisel marks left on the marble made me sense that Michelangelo himself was still standing right beside the unfinished stone image to eternally continue carving the stone into his last Pieta.

His profound agony and grief about the meaning of our existence are vividly engraved in this beautiful marble statue.

(By great good fortune, during my trip in Italy, the government granted permission for all tourists to photograph the art treasures in almost every museum in that magnificent country.)
