Originally sculpted by Renaissance master artist Michelangelo in 1494-1495, this angel statue is truly magnificent! From the draped folds to the powerful swell of the wings, a more graceful composition of a kneeling angel doesn't exist. Sculpted by Michelangelo at the beginning of his career, he adapted the style of master artist Jacopo della Quercia's great portal in the Basilica of San Petronio. Even at this early age, the fundamental ideas concerning figural composition for which he later would become famous - "Using the judgment of his eye" - were firmly in place. When placed as a sentinel at your doorway, fireplace or garden path, this wonderful, three-foot-tall angel statue will be admired for every Renaissance-era sculptural detail. Cast in quality designer resin, our Toscano-exclusive boasts a weathered stone finish.

  • About The Artist

      Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564)
      Michelangelo was an Italian Renaissance painter sculptor architect poet and engineer whose name is immediately recognized as an art master. Along with his contemporary and rival Leonardo da Vinci Michelangelo is considered an archetype of the Renaissance Man because of his mastery of different skills.

      Michelangelo was born near Tuscany Italy. He began his training in painting with Domenico Ghirlandio and sculpting with Bertoldo DiGiovanni very early in life and showed great aptitude for both trades.

      The best-documented artist of the 16th century Michelangelo is most famous for his sculpts of David and the Pieta. It is said of the latter - It is certainly a miracle that a formless block of stone could ever have been reduced to a perfection that nature is scarcely able to create in the flesh.

      Michelangelo also created one of the most recognized Renaissance sculptures the colossal David in 1504. A symbol of Florentine freedom David permanently established Michelangelo's skill as a sculptor with extreme technical care and vivid imagination.

      Michelangelo is also known for painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome which took four years to complete starting in 1508. He was originally commissioned to paint the 12 apostles but opted for a more complex theme of Creation depicting the downfall of man and the promise of salvation. Among the most famous Michelangelo paintings on the Sistine Chapel ceiling is The Creation of Adam.

      In addition to magnificent paintings and sculptures Michelangelo also was a successful architect having created the facade for the Basilica of San Lorenzo Medici Chapel and Laurentian Library all in Florence.
