My favourite work of art
Michelangelo. Tomb of Lorenzo de' Medici. 1526-1531. Marble. Medici Chapel, San Lorenzo, Florence, Italy.
(Here is another example for 2nd graders)
The statue of Lorenzo di Medici is my favourite work of art, when I see "Il Pensieroso" I can feel his strength, his thinking attitude is so clear I can imagine what he is thinking about. In this renaissance sculpture you see the classical influence, but you even imagine what is to come in the baroque. Geniuses are like this they get inspiration in the past and are able to be a source of newer works of arts.
