What does Pieta mean in English? A pietà (Italian pronunciation: [pjeˈta]; meaning "pity", "compassion") is a subject in Christian art depicting the Virgin Mary cradling the dead body of Jesus, most often found in sculpture.
In Christian art, a Pietà is any portrayal (particularly, a sculptural depiction) of the Virgin Mary holding the body of her son, Jesus. According to the Bible, Jesus was crucified for claiming to be the son of God. Though Mary embracing her dead son is not explicitly mentioned in the holy book, the scene has proven a popular subject among artists for centuries, after German sculptors introduced wooden Vesperbild (a term that translates to “image of the vespers”) figurines to Northern Europe during the Middle Ages.
Various painters and sculptors have created the famous Pieta, depicting the Crucifixion pain of mothers and sons after suffering in many different styles and forms. Of all the great paintings and sculptures of Pieta, Michelangelo’s work stands out from all the others. His interpretation of the Pieta is far removed from other artists’ previous creations. Michelangelo decided to create a youthful, serene, and celestial Virgin Mary, rather than a heartbroken, older woman.
