This Michelangelo statue
shows a classic depiction of the bible figure
Moses the leader, lawgiver, and historian that
lived in the thirteenth and early part of the
12th Century BC. As a baby Moses was found floating
down the bank of the Nile in Egypt. After that
Moses, as told in the bible, starting off as a
mere shepherd who talked directly to god, eventually
to become a prophet and separate the red sea for
the slaves of exodus of Egypt. One of the most
puzzling features of Michelangelo's statue of
Moses are the two horns placed on top of his head.
What exactly was Michelangelo trying to say by
this... that Moses wasn't normal?
