Artist's Description

I feel very fortunate to have seen this masterpiece of Michelangelo. Located in St. Peter Church in Vatican, unfortunately kept away secure behind a thick strong glass shield.

Some of Michelangelo’s thoughts:
A beautiful thing never gives so much pain as does failing to hear and see it.

Faith in oneself is the best and safest course.

Genius is eternal patience.

I am still learning.

I hope that I may always desire more than I can accomplish.

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.

It is well with me only when I have a chisel in my hand.

There is no greater harm than that of time wasted.
