Here's Michelangelo's Dying Slave (1513-15) for comparison with the proposed Slavery Memorial in the next post down. This is the standard required if the memorial is going to get its message across. By coincidence, a new exhibition of the master's original drawings and writings has opened at the SUArt Galleries, Shaffer Art Building, Syracuse University, USA: Michelangelo: The Man and the Myth. It's free, open to the public and continues until 19 October. If you live locally, don't miss it. Click the title link for a calendar of associated talks and events.
