I've been sent photos of items that a friend inherited recently and that he later wants to sell, this is one item but I have no idea who this Greek? fellow represents. I don't have any information on signatures on the Bronze or details on the size at this time. Would anyone recognize the character or the Art Work? Thanks, RER(BOB)

    It is a self portrait Michelangelo Buonarroti

    As Moses in San Pietro in Vincoli, Roma.
    The English translation of Freud's "The Moses of Michelangelo" also provides a basic description of the sculpture: ""The Moses of Michelangelo is represented as seated; his body faces forward, his head with its mighty beard looks to the left, his right foot rests on the ground and his left leg is raised so that only the toes touch the ground. His right arm links the Tables of the Law with a portion of his beard; his left arm lies in his lap."
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moses_(Michelangelo)

    Freud really got into the figure of Moses.

    The horns he got from talking to Jahweh.

    Is it a representation of Moses in the image of Michelangelo? or a depiction of Moses by Michelangelo?.....in any case, I am very anxious to get my hands on it to see the foundry marks, signatures etc... Will take more photos and will upload them here at CW for everyone to see, Thanks PhilDavidAlexanderMorris and vetraio50 for your input and geo26e & blunderbuss2 for the Love! BOB

    I had read that he formed the sculpture to be in his own likeness.
