Michelangelo Gold Fountain Pen
With the talent and grace of a master, the detail and delicacy of a perfectionist, and the soul and emotion of an infinite spirit, Michelangelo Buonarroti became one of the greatest and most admired artists of all time. His numerous masterpieces display his sophisticated understanding of human existence, his unique interpretation of shape and form, and his phenomenal talent as a painter, sculptor and architect. Living during the Renaissance, a time of political uneasiness, Michelangelo surpassed the criticisms and disruptions of his surroundings, remaining true to his beliefs and never compromising the extravagance of his artistry.
One of Michelangelo’s most famous works is the gigantic marble sculpture, David, which took him over three years to complete. Michelangelo created David as a symbol of heroic courage and inner spiritual strength. This sculpture became one of the first examples of Michelangelo’s intricate study of the human form.
Perhaps Michelangelo’s most widely known accomplishment is the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican where he painted more than three-hundred figures in a series of panels depicting scenes from the book of Genesis. To this day, the colossal dimension and pure brilliance of the Sistine Chapel ceiling astounds all who observe it.
