Michalengelo's Pieta is a beautiful scultpture of The Virigin Mary and her son Jesus.  The sculpture depicts Mary holding Jesus right after his crucifixion.  The images in both faces are so real and Mary's body is actually significantly larger than Jesus'.  The scultpure is in St. Peter's Bascilica in the Vatican City. Mary acutally looks very young.  This Pieta is also unique because Michelangelo actually signed the sculpture.
