Advent Art: Madonna of Bruges

Michelangelo (1475–1564)
Madonna of Bruges, 1501-04
Marble
Madonna of Bruges
Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk, Bruges, Belgium

My favorite Michelangelo sculpture is the small statue of an angel said to have been purchased in Bologna, Italy, and later donated to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York by Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. But this one is pretty good too.
