Michaelangelo's Pieta Posted by Hello

How oddly appropriate! I am reading 'The Agony And The Ecstasy' - the part where Michealangelo dissects corpses to learn anatomy. Now when I look at The Pieta, I can't but help notice the shape of Jesus' legs, the way each contour (eg: ones near the knee and ankle) has been fashioned, the way the cloth folds in where Mary holds Jesus (to name a few) - Maybe thats what makes it so moving - life like but minus the curse of transience...

O Attic shape! fair attitude! with brede
Of marble men and maidens overwrought,
With forest branches and the trodden weed;
Thou, silent form! dost tease us out of thought
As doth eternity: Cold Pastoral!
When old age shall this generation waste,
Thou shalt remain, in midst of other woe
Than ours, a friend to man, to whom thou say'st,
'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.'

-- Keats, Ode On a Grecian Urn.
