Likely the most famous depiction of the Virgin Mary and her son, Jesus Christ, the work represented in the Pieta Cremation Keepsake now sits in St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican. Jesus held in the arms of his mother, the Virgin Mary. Michelangelo carved the original Pieta from a single block of Carrara marble. Holy in image, these unique keepsake urns are also gentle tributes to the tender compassion and unbreakable connection between a mother and her beloved son. It is the only art form ever signed by Michelangelo. These ash keepsakes offer a special memorial to a loved one and remember a bond that is wholly unique, yet truly universal.
