BRADENTON, FL (December 2014) - On loan from the Museum of Leonardo DaVinci in Florence, Italy, The Divine Michelangelo & DaVinci Side by Side Exhibition illustrates the startling genius of the two Renaissance masterminds. On display are Michelangelo's and DaVinci’s most important works and sculptures, which are original cast reproductions created directly from the Master's works by the National Academy of Cast Making in Florence. The intention of the Exhibition is to provide visitors with an unparalleled experience by immersing the viewer into the lives of two of the world greatest artists that ever lived.
The Exhibition is divided into Michelangelo's and DaVinci’s sculptures, paintings, architecture, inventions and machines. Notable statues include the life size head of David, as well as the Pieta, whose depiction of Mary holding Jesus' body grips the viewer with maternal grief. Elsewhere, visitors get up close to examine the details in his famed Sistine Chapel frescos. High-quality reproductions let guests gaze at The Creation of Adam in the sort of detail known only to professional restorers. DaVinci’s interactive inventions are highlighted and on display are his licensed reproductions masterpieces framed to the exact size of the original artwork. The secret of DaVinci’s Mechanical Lion is revealed.
