    A characteristically pungent and illuminating - for its author - exegesis of a majestic and compelling work of art!

    I accidentally caught the brief televised episode of "Saul" on TV yesterday and was fascinated by it. The presentation of the statue's history, transportation, floor reinforcement, restoration, and final placement was fascinating. In one of Story's books, he has an hagiographic section on Michaelangelo that allows one to see his influence on Story and this particular sculpture that is a boon to the museum's collection.
