Garden Sanctuary Pieta Sculpture by Michelangelo Buonarroti. A famous example by Michelangelo is located in St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican City. This Pieta Sculpture is an estate-sized reproduction of original statue that was found just outside the church of Santa Croce, Michelangelo’s final resting place in Florence. One of the things that has amazed us about Michelangelo’s breathtaking Pieta is that his vision began with a rough block of marble hauled out of the quarries at Carrara, Italy.
This replica is cast in weather-resistant quality designer resin for outdoor garden use. Please also consult our “Winter Care of Statues” page to make your statues last the longest and keep their beauty over time.
Pietà is one of the three common artistic representations of a sorrowful Virgin Mary, the other two being Mater Dolorosa (Mother of Sorrows) and Stabat Mater (here stands the mother). The scene of the Pieta shows the Virgin Mary holding the dead body of Christ after his crucifixion, death, and removal from the cross, but before he was placed in the tomb. This is one of the key events from the life of the Virgin, known as the Seven Sorrows of Mary, which were the subject of Catholic devotional prayers.
