“Fille de Michel-Ange”

In the sixteenth century,

religious scenes were fired with tin glazes,

the Magi’s robes came alive in colour.

Sculptures made from limewood hung from church rafters,

and Michaelangelo returned to Florence.

He rendered the night sky his daughter,

and granted her eternal rest.
