Fiberglass statue, internally empty and very light. It is suitable to be carried during the processions. The manufacturing is entirely manual. When the two parts are linked, there is the finishing of the statue and it is perfectly smoothed, then the statue goes through the coloring section. The skilled decorators hand paint using particolar varnishes, conforming to the traditional iconography. The fiberglass is a plastic material, very resistant and humidity absorber which is used in many sectors: industry, furnitures, building of boats, airplanes, vehicles, garden swimmingpool etc.
There is not a story of apparitions or miracles, but simply a representation of Mary Mother of Jesus, who has her dead son in her arms.
The most popular image is the “Pietà” of Michelangelo, that he sculpted between 1498 and 1499 in the Carrara’s marble, for the French Cardinal Jean de Bilhères commission.
Some critics pointed out the young aspect of the Virgin compared with Christ. Michelangelo told that “Chastity, Sanctity and Uncorruption preserve the youth”.
The opionion of Vasari about those critiques was beautiful and perfectly interpreted. He wrote that the critics did not know that the virgin people maintained the air of their face without any marks.
Michelangelo interpreted the representation not to illustrate the Christ’s death, but he was principally interested in the symbolic aspect.
