Slave by Michelangelo Garden Statue 48.5H - 4737 -
Originally intended as part of a colossal sculptural project for the tomb of Julius II, this Dying Slave (1513-1516) is only one of three sculptures ever completed for this project. Michelangelo was pulled from the project several times during his career and put to work on other projects such as the Sistine Chapel. This Slave, now in the Louvre Museum, was planned as part of a series of twelve figures intended to represent the Liberal Arts crushed and fettered by the death of their patron.
This reproduction is half lifesize. It celebrates Michelangelo's mastery at sculpting the human body in a classical style. The gesture of the slave with arm upraised both evokes sympathy of his imprisonment and offers a sensual view of the male form.
