I was aware of photos that show emotions and paintings that show emotions, but can a sculpture show emotions? An expressive sculpture that shows human emotions is perhaps the most difficult art form. Michelangelo’s Pieta, as shown above, is a stunning sculpture that depicts Mother Mary carrying mortally wounded Jesus in her lap. There are a lot of nuances behind this masterpiece, and you can read about them here. Isn’t this sculpture expressive? I find it amazing!
