Michelangelo's Moses



"Michelangelo felt that this was his most life-like creation. Legend has it that upon its completion he struck the right knee commanding, "now speak!" as he felt that life was the only thing left inside the marble. There is a scar on the knee thought to be the mark of Michelangelo's hammer."

This sculpture is right up there with the Pieta and David for me. I have to get to Italy before I die!
