Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Moses is an imposing figure—he is nearly eight feet high sitting down! He has enormous muscular arms and an angry, intense look in his eyes. Under his arms he carries the tablets of the law—the stones inscribed with the Ten Commandments that he has just received from God on Mt.
This comes from a mistranslation of a Hebrew word that described Moses as having rays of light coming from his head. They have, in other words, been acting like the Egyptians and worshipping a pagan idol. Here is the passage from the Hebrew Bible:. Then Moses turned and went down the mountain.
They were inscribed on both sides, front and back. It is the sound of a celebration.

In terrible anger, he threw the stone tablets to the ground, smashing them at the foot of the mountain. Exodus The entire figure is charged with thought and energy.

It is not entirely clear what moment of the story Michelangelo shows us. Moses is actually described as having "rays of the skin of his face", which Jerome in the Vulgate had translated as "horns". The mistake in translation is possible because the word "keren" in the Hebrew language can mean either "radiated light " or "grew horns".
The Moses of Michelangelo in St. Peter in Chains
In the Moses sculpture a respect and total understanding of his materials and his own abilities combine to create the masterpiece hewn from marble by a 38 year old, at the height of his genius! It is said that Michelangelo created a new world of art, a colossal planet in which his Moses was high priest. Certainly in his daring energy, he produced stupendous results, which those who followed him could never imitate without becoming ridiculous or grotesque. The Moses encapsulates Michelangelo's own courage and passion at a time when he was fighting to be able to complete the tomb of Pope Julius II.
