and was inspired by my love of Michelangelo’s famous statue, ‘The Pietà’ and the healing messages of the Madonna. The Madonna is known as ‘The Lady’, and I created this painting as a devotional piece to capture the healing essence The Madonna symbolises.
I was blessed with the opportunity to see Michelangelo’s, ‘The Pietà’ in person on my trip to Italy in 2019. I’m in awe of this sculpture and painting it has me even more in awe! The original is on display at St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City. Visiting this amazing destination was an experience that I find hard to put into words.
The Pietà by Michelangelo
On my return home to Australia from Italy I was able to add more depth to my own work in progress. There is something truly amazing about seeing Michelangelo’s work in person, I found it deeply inspiring. I have so much respect and admiration for the depth of his work. I am inspired by his dedication and desire to master his craft.
The image of the Madonna symbolises faith and purity. Inspiring hope and faith, and a belief in something greater than us.
