This was the first statue that Michaelangelo ever created for the Vatican.
Even though he was 17 at the time; people were stunned by the perfection of it. It was the only piece of artwork he ever signed (he signed the madonna's head wrap); though he later said that it the worst desicion in his life.
This is a copy of it, the original was destroyed by a madman who hacked at it's arms and face, believing that he was Michaelangelo

It's the Pieta!!
He actually signed the strap that's going across her chest, after he finished it and had it on display. He signed it because people thought it was another artist's work and that royal pissed him off, so he broke into the vatican at night and signed the strap across her chest. And the original has been fixed, the madman took off her nose >.< Horrible thing to do to such a wonderful sculpture.
^.^
This is an awesome picture. I love the lighting in this.
