The Pietà is a subject in Christian art depicting the Virgin Mary cradling the dead body of Jesus after his body was removed from the cross. This masterpiece of Italian Renaissance sculpture (1499) is located in St. Peter's basilica in Rome. Michelangelo was commissioned to make it by the French envoy to Rome, Cardinal Jean de Billheres. This explains the subject matter which was unusual for Italy at the time. Maria has been depicted at a surprisingly young age.
