Moses Piece Sculpture Religious Statue Bronze Figure Figurine Marble Vintage Art. This sculpture is in perfect condition. Peter's Basilica, Moses and the tomb were instead placed in the minor church of San Pietro in Vincoli on the Esquiline in Rome after the pope's death.This church was patronized by the Della Rovere family from which Julius came, and he had been titular cardinal there. The statue depicts Moses with horns on his head. This is believed to be because of a mistranslation of Exodus 34:29-35 by St Jerome. Moses is actually described as having rays of the skin of his face, which Jerome in the Vulgate had translated as horns (See Halo). The mistake in translation is possible because the wordage can mean either radiated (light) or grew horns.
Michelangelo felt that this was his most life-like creation. Legend has it that upon its completion he struck the right knee commanding, Now speak! As he felt that life was the only thing left inside the marble. There is a scar on the knee thought to be the mark of Michelangelo's hammer.
