Cast Iron Statue of "Night", as depicted in Michael Angelo's Allegorical Night

About

Cast iron statue of "Night", as depicted in Michael Angelo's Allegorical Night and Day sculptures for the Tomb of Gilliano De' Medici. The only one of the four allegorical figures reclining on the sarcophagi in the chapel to be clearly identified by her attributes, Night is accompanied by an owl, a mask, and a clutch of poppies. A moon is on her diadem. Her muscular body reflects Michelangelo's habit of working from a male model even for his female nudes. In fact, several of the artist's sketches for Night, using a male model, are still preserved, circa 1900-1920.
