Skepticism and humanism connect to Michelangelo because he created new ways and different techniques to build buildings and to create his art.
When was the piece created: 1501-1504
Where is it: sits in the Church of Our Lady in Bruges, Belgium
This sculpture is of the virgin Mary and her son Jesus. Mary is sitting down with baby Jesus standing in front of her holding her hand. I find this sculpture interesting because in the description it said that Mary does not cling to her son or even look at him, like she already
knows her son's fate. (Jesus's crucifixion).
This sculpture represents skepticism because of the different techniques Michelangelo used to make it like using painted plaster.
