When I look at a Michelangelo sculpture, I see the great energy he used to chip the image out of the stone. How he must have needed to sculpt! Look at this Moses figure, larger than life, designed for the tomb of Pope Julius II. He is seated, and yet he appears grand, muscular, forceful, important. The physical aspects of the marble met their human match. And I mean that as a double entendre. Sometimes I wonder if Michelangelo imagined Moses to be quite like himself.
