The choice of the name “Artgender” derives from the consideration for which the brand that identifies a particular company that operates in the sectors of event planning, publishing and communication has never been used; for us art is a real type of human being, that is, who is deeper. Does not exclude anyone but renames a category, composed of very different people within… elsewhere I think, origin and direction; but, united by a single factor: the artistic one. Anyone can be or feel like an artist as long as he is concerned with producing or simply approaching any form of expression. Our identity is necessary, in things, in people, in words, in ways… that teaching contributes to formation ‘individual evolution.

Moses (Michelangelo)

As the epilogue of the previous days, dedicated to Christianity, today we propose #Michelangelo Buonarroti’s Moses as one of the most iconographic and symbolic works of sacred art, the one in which the forms reflect the spiritual vision of a given religion.

☞ Do you know…

‣ Incredible but true, this block of precious #marble sculpted by one of the most skilled artists of all time, was initially seated on the throne in front of the spectator, with chest and head perpendicular to the lower part of the body. Only 25 years later, Michelangelo wanted to twist his bust and then make important changes so that the allegorical meaning was even more pertinent

‣ The statue of #Moses was to adorn the tomb of the 216th pope of the Catholic Church together with about 40 other statues but, once completed, it was believed that alone was enough to honor the burial of Julius II. The unmistakable majesty of the work is enriched with details such as the tables of the Law – highlighted by our red – which are reversed, as if they had slipped from the Moses arms. Furthermore, those curious horns on his head are probably due to a translation error from the #Bible in which two sun rays are described (in Hebrew these words are very similar to each other)
