"Head of Madonna From The Pieta" Cast Carrara Marble Sculpture W/Mixed Media Paint, Gold Leaf & Copper by Prince Lorenzo de' Medici W/Letter of Authenticity - This sculpture is called "Head of Madonna From The Pieta", and is Prince Lorenzo de' Medici's artistic interpretation of the Pieta by Michangelo. The Pieta is the only signed work by Michelangelo, who considered it as the complete expression of his talent and the divine inspiration he believed to be the guiding hand behind his work. This sculpture opens links very dear to the artist Lorenzo de' Medici, especially for his family inheritance that first considered these ideas five centuries ago. These concepts are at the core of Prince Lorenzo de' Medici's recent POP artworks and this piece is an exploration to deepen on Michelangelo's thinking, who originally created this sculpture of the Madonna. The Madonna della' Pieta is a study of the spiritual beauty that was Michelangelo’s artistic ideal. It is a testament to his abiding love of God, the source of his inspiration, that he was able to capture the compassion and serenity in Mary’s face with so much grace that five centuries later, the vision of it continues to inspire artists like Prince Lorenzo and others. Prince Lorenzo has decorated the art work with inserts of gold leaf (the color of the house of Medici), and finished the piece with a copper coated gold crown. The sculpture is signed on the front by Prince Lorenzo, and will come with a letter of authenticity from the Prince on his royal letterhead. Measurements: 20"H x 14.5"W x 14"D. Prince Lorenzo de Medici is the descendant and heir to one of the most famous family names in human history. The de' Medici Dynasty, which created the Italian Renaissance, symbolizes unparalleled historical contributions to art, politics, banking, cuisine, medicine, accounting, philanthropy, commerce, geography, agriculture, religion, textiles, and fashion. Prince Lorenzo is a philanthropist, international keynote speaker, television personality, chef and culinary expert, artist, and auto enthusiast, fluent in English, Italian, Spanish, Polish, and Russian. He has stated that art is his passion.
