Crucified Jesus and a younger-faced eternal Mary

Rome, Italy

Michelangelo was 25 when he finished this, commissioned at age 22.
It's conjectured that he sculpted Mary's face for the age she was when she gave birth to Jesus
and bearing in mind (the sculptor's) this inevitable ending as a part of a divine plan.

A heartrending moment beautifully portrayed.
Excellent composition; good colour and tones;
great light.
