Abstract:

This beautiful art book contains 150 stunning photos of Michelangelo's greatest masterpiece that truly inspire in the reader a spirit of prayer and love of Jesus and Mary. Pieta , an Italian word meaning pity and compassion , is derived from the Latin pietas , meaning a profound love that neither life nor death can destroy . That is what the photos of this divinely inspired sculpture profoundly communicate to the viewer. Hupka was allowed to photograph the Pietà from every possible angle, and these photos allow you to experience this incredibly life-like image in its full magnificence. So powerful are these photos that many of them have been enlarged to life-size photos and are on tour around the world. The great variety of angles of these photos show how the spiritual, human and artistic have never been more perfectly blended than in the Pietà. Words could never describe the love, compassion, beauty and sorrow in the faces and figures of Mary and Jesus that Michelangelo communicates in his Pietà.
