Pieta sculptures are very common in western religious culture. The sculptor captured the original tragedy of the Pieta, showing the anguish of Jesus’ death and the Virgin’s grief over her son’s death. Take a look at our Pieta sculpture, Jesus’ body was small and full of wounds. The gash on his side was large and deep and still gushing blood. Mother holding Jesus, the face is full of the appearance of love.
The realism embodied in the Madonna is characteristic of Gothic art. But Jesus was expressionist in style: the skeletal features of his body emphasized his suffering and death. At that time, the people of Europe were suffering from plague and famine. The sweet, soft figures of the last century no longer resonate with the people. Images of Christ the Redeemer and the Virgin in pain have a strong impact on those who have witnessed the death of a family member. The Pieta sculpture is a very collectible piece of art.
