    Michelangelo%27s_Pieta_5450_cut_out_black.jpg

    Michelangelo's Pietà in St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican

    That is stunning.

    Seeing his work in person is a religious experience.

    I'm going to Italy in May so hopefully I will get to experience that! :)

    We're going there next year too.

    Florence, Milan & Rome.

    For me its "The Sick Child"

    I dunno, its just the way she is looking at her mother almost comfortingly with acceptance. The colors. One of my favorites.

    Makes me feel sad. :(

    First two are carvings by Zheng Chunhui. The second picture is the worlds largest wood carving on one piece of wood.

    Don't know the artist on the last two carvings.

    Artist on the last one is Peter Demetz:

    Some folks might say: "Pfft, I could have painted that."

    Point 1. No, you couldn't have.
    Point 2. .... and you didn't.

    You can't appreciate a lot of art like Rothko's without seeing it in person - a reproduction in a book or on the internet can't do a work of art justice because you're getting a crude approximation of the colors and textures you see when you're in it's presence -- or the psychological impact of experiencing it.

    Trooth.

    I sat in a London Art Museum last month surrounded by Rothko's art. It's amazing work.

    Stanley Lau (Artgerm) has work that I can study for hours. He has such a unique style that is rarely seen anymore in comic book covers. Soft colours, yet strong lines. He's a genius.
