Crucifix

Two crucifix sculptures have been attributed to Michelangelo Buonarroti from an early part of his career.

Included in this page are two sketches completed by the artist of the same religious topic which continues to offer artists an incredibly powerful symbol to use within their work.

You can find the wooden sculpture in Wikipedia and that particular piece came about in 1492.

It has only been in recent years that both of these items have actually been considered as works from Michelangelo, and much research was completed before that conclusion was drawn.
