Moses was a stunning marble sculpture completed by Michelangelo in 1515.

It was relatively rare for the artist to produce a full-length sculpture, with the commission coming from Pope Julius II who desired an elaborate tomb.

The photograph to the right illustrates the detail involved in this piece and centers in on just the upper half of the large sculpture. In total, it stands at 235cm tall.

Moses is depicted here with two horns and most of the controversy and discussion that has surrounded this sculpture has been directly related to the horns and the reason for their inclusion.

The sculpture is now on display at the San Pietro in Vincoli in Rome. The original purpose was for it to be kept privately in the tomb of Julius II but it's current location makes this important historic sculpture far more accessible to fans of the Renaissance and art in general.
