MOSES, MASSIVE AND DELICATE

Since I spent a few days in Rome last week, I went to see (among millions of marvels) the Moses sculpted by Michelangelo at the church San Pietro in Vincoli. I remained voiceless for quite a long time. Its long curly beard, even though it has been carved in one the heardest material, is incredibly delicate and looks soft and fluffy like cotton. The statue of the prophet exudes a mix of absolute strengh and infinite delicacy, that left me a comforting impression of wiseness.
