Michelangelo's - Pietà impacted me so much the first time I laid my eyes on it. It's one of the most beautiful pieces of art created. It was a piece of art I always wanted to do my own interpretation of for many years now but never felt like the right opportunity until Salem. When I was initially thinking about the concept for this I remembered something I read about the death of Pan. “It was said that Pan died because Christ was born. The death of the ancient order at the coming of the new.” Remembering that. The idea all solidified at that time.
