Michelangelo's Pietà, pendant

Made by
3D printed in organic bronze resembling rose gold with a rough antique finish.
Product Description
This pendant is an extremely accurate 3D scanned, 3D printed, and hand-cast reduction of the face of the Virgin Mary from Michelangelo's sculptural masterpiece, the Pietà. 

Completed in 1499 and now housed in the St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City, Michelangelo's interpretation was unprecedented in Italian sculpture, balancing Renaissance ideals of classical beauty with naturalism.

In 2014, I obtained a high-quality cast of Mary's face, which had been made from a mold taken directly from Michelangelo's original marble in the Vatican. I produced a 3D scan, and prepared the resulting data for 3D printing. The result is the highest-quality 3D model—and the most accurate reduction—of the face of Mary ever produced.

You can now wear you own copy of the Pietà around your neck, in a variety of materials.
