A Concrete Work Of Pieta


Chapter One


Introduction

When a phrase like this is raised La’ pieta a several question will come to peoples thought or mind. What do we mean by La’ Pieta? Great deals of works have been done about the La’ Pieta.

La’ Pieta refers to the subject of Christ in the Lap of his sorrowful mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, after He had been crucified and removed from the cross. During the Renaissance period, the Pieta was a very common theme in France and Germany. So when the French cardinal lean de Bilheres Lagraulas approached the young Michelangelo to create a sculpture for the cardinal’s future tomb in old St. Peter’s Basilica, the subject was not a surprise issue. What amazed people were how Michelangelo used the marble stone to capture the theme.

In the sculpture, Jesus is draped in–bet ween Mary’s Lap as she looked down upon His body in grief. Whereas most Italian artists portrayed Christ during His crucifixion and emphasized His wounds and suffering, Michelangelo’s sculpture is calm and almost tranquil, but still full of sadness.

In this Pieta, the artist tried to display the wounds on Jesus hand and feet from being nailed to the cross are small. He looks almost as if he has fallen asleep, not being the victim of violence. The focus is on the relationship between Christ and His sorrowful mother, was captured here.

Besides the structure which is pyramidal and the vertex coincide with Mary’s head, the status widens progressively down the drapery of Mary’s dress, to the base the risk of Gologotha. The figures are quite out of proportion, owing to the difficulty of depicting a fully-grown man cradled full-length in a woman’s Lap. Much of Mary’s body is concealed by her monumental drapery and the relationship of the figures appears quite natural. The artist’s interpretation of the Pieta was different from those previously created by other artiste. He sculpted a young and beautiful Mary rather than an older woman around 50 years of age.

The marks of the crucifixion are limited to very small nail marks, an indication of the wound in Jesus’ side.

Christ’s face does not reveal signs of passion. The researcher did not want his version of the pieta to represent death. But rather to show the religious vision of abandonment and a serene face of the son.

Modeling according to Michelangelo, is a method of shaping an object or figure by adding and subtracting into in stage which can be done on: cement, fiberglass, plaster of Paris (Pop) clay etc just like the artists choice of concrete in his project. There are four ways through which the sculpture piece can be achieved these include.

Carving (Removal). Assemblage, installation, and Construction Modeling (adding) and subtracting finally casting technique.
