M is for Michelangelo #atozchallenge

Michelangelo (1475-1564) 

Michelangelo was a sculptor, painter, and architect. He designed the Pieta and the David. He painted The Last Judgement on the altar wall of the Sistine Chapel and the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. He also designed and built St. Peter's Basilica. 

Michelangelo had the uncanny ability to "see" the figure in a block of stone. For him, sculpturing was merely the art of removing the extraneous material.
