Artwork Statement Sympathy is based on Michelangelo's Pieta which I have seen two versions of one in the Medici Museum in Florence and the other in the Vatican. It is a powerful sculpture of great beauty and tragedy. It is of a mother cradling a dead son synonymous to the war images that we see in our newspaper and television. But the print could also mean many things to many people.
