Michelangelo's inspiration

Deep in the classical galleries of the Vatican there lies a statue of a male torso which we were told was of great inspiration to Michelangelo.

The torso moves in muscles:
hints of male love with
fulfilment in stone.

Ostia, port of Rome

Step on me lightly:
mosaics tell my history now -
codes in black and white.
