Friday Featured Art: Michelangelo's Slaves

A year ago we were in Istanbul for spring break.  I was recently looking at some of our photos from the trip.  We had a layover in Paris and got to visit the Louvre.  (That was a dream come true!)  Michelangelo's Captives are almost beyond belief.  The Rebellious Slave and the Dying Slave were carved from marble but left unfinished.  The muscles in the arms and the chests are so incredibly lifelike.  I love Michelangelo.  {These are photos I took.}
