This version of The Pieta, by Jan Fabre, is a world famous Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo Buonarroti and is housed in St Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City. It depicts the body of Jesus on the lap of Mary, after the crucifixion.
The version you see before you know is the controversial remake by Belgian artist Jan Fabre. We have featured the work of Fabre before and it is good to see some more skulls from this immensely talented man.
