Slaves of Michelangelo
In 1513 Michelangelo began work on two male figures for the Mausoleum of Pope Julian II in St. Peters Rome. The two masterpieces remain unfinished, uniquely revealing Michelangelos genius.

The two sculptures were made by Royal command forty years apart for the Chateau of Marly. Both technically comparable the differences in treatment reveal the stylistic developments of the period.

Perhaps the most famous of all Greek classical sculptures, the Venus de Milo was recovered in 1820. But very little is known of its origin even its subject is uncertain.

These Winged Bulls of King Sargon II from 1900 BC are amongst the greatest masterpieces of Assyrian art.

Top Customer Reviews
This work has 7 segments. So I think one school could use it for multiple purposes. The art teacher can show the Michelangelo segment when teaching about Renaissance art. At Christian schools, they can show the Mary Magdelene segment to students. The Ramses segment will be good when Ancient Egypt comes up in whichever class.
This work showed no academic interviewees. Instead, just the narrator speaks while still and moving images are shown. I stand by what I said in the first paragraph, but I also must admit that this made me want to visit the Louvre.
