Pieta, Michelangelo. So lovely. On May 21, 1972,  a mentally disturbed man walked into the chapel and attacked the sculpture with a geologist's hammer while shouting "I am Jesus Christ." Onlookers took many of the pieces of marble that flew off. Later, some pieces were returned, but many were not, including Mary's nose, which had to be reconstructed from a block cut out of her back.

Pieta by Michelangelo. Can you believe that he created this masterpeice when he was JUST 21 years old? This is Mary holding Christ after he was resurrected for one last time. Imagine being a mother and feeling this way.

RÉFÉRENCES ET SYMBOLES DANS GUERNICA. Le motif du taureau et notamment du Minotaure d'une part et de la corrida d'autre part, est très importante dans la carrière de Picasso. Dans Guernica, il devient une figure assez ambiguë, symbole de la bestialité et de la cruauté pour les uns, symbole de la force et de la résistance pour les autres.
