English: Model of a Slave

about 1516-19
Michelangelo Buonarroti (1473-1564)
Michelangelo made this small wax figure as a model for a marble slave (now in the Louvre, Paris) for the tomb of Pope Julius II. The 16th century artist and biographer Giorgio Vasari said that when Michelangelo was carving a large marble he would place a wax model in water and gradually raise it to reveal more of the form.
