trip to the duomo museum

same day as the duomo, right next door

This is a quick little entry.
We went to the duomo museum after and looked at pieces of the facade and drawings as well as statues.
The museum is very interesting and there is a lot to see.

These drawing were very interesting. They are a series of drawings competing for the design of the facade of the structure. You can see differences and even where changes were made.
When looking at them you can als see sections of the restoration of some of the pieces.

This one actually has some sketches of ideas and where it would change.
The following one has a more finalized idea.

Here is a sculpture of Adam and Eve.

And this last piece is by Michelangelo. It was one of the last peices he had done and one that is breathtaking.
It is a version of a Pieta and one where he added himself as the figure of Nicodemus. He is holding up chrsit. It is also an unfinished piece which gives it another dimension.
Michelangelo intended for this to be his own tomb marker.
