San Pietro in Vicoli (St. Peter in chains) is a church in Rome which houses the “chains of St. Peter”, a relic of the Roman Catholic church which are supposedly the actual chains which bound St. Peter in Jerusalem.
The thing the church is most famous for though is that it’s the home of Michelangelo’s statue of Moses :)
The statue is part of the tomb of Pope Julius II, which was initially designed to be much larger and include over 40 statues ;>.>
While the completed tomb is much more modest in size compared to it’s early designs it’s still an impressively detailed piece of work.
Moses takes centre stage and it’s amazing how Michelangelo could carve stone to make it look like flowing robes in such detail :)
