Moses by Michelangelo

This most famous, realistic, and stunningly beautiful statute of Moses, built during 1513-1515 by the Italian High Renaissance Artist & Sculptor - Michelangelo, forms the center-piece in the tomb of Pope Julius II constructed by the master. It is placed in San Pietro Church in Vincoli in Rome, the capital of Italy. Moses is shown with horns in this statue. This is due to misinterpretation of Hebrew Scriptures into Latin. 'Moses radiates light' became 'Moses grew horns'. Comments & suggestions are welcome.
