Description

10 euro Copper coin in Box dedicated to Michelangelo's Pietà, new Papal series "Art and Faith", Brilliant Uncirculated.
AVAILABLE FROM THE END OF MARCH 2020
We inaugurate this new cycle with a sculpted work of undisputed and extraordinary beauty, the Pietà, created by the 24-year-old Michelangelo Buonarroti between 1498-1499 on commission from the French cardinal Jean de Bilhères, ambassador of Charles VIII to the court of Pope Alexander VI and destined to the chapel of Santa Petronilla where the cardinal's funeral would probably have been.
Here Art and Faith merge completely reaching an expressive and emotional strength of rare intensity, without affecting in any way the delicacy and sweetness of the composition which remains one of the most admired sculptural works ever.
