It is the air you breathe that God allows. In Bologna there is a Niccolo dell'Arca lamentation of the dead Christ, Compianto sul Cristo morto, c. 1485 at the Chiesa di Santa Maria della Vita to take your breath somewhere closer to God. The emotional expressiveness in the terracotta figures takes you to a diamond in your heart, God seems to illuminate your understanding of the emotions of life and death, the love of Christ and our position with the stars. God is in the air all around and takes you through your heart on a journey unto him with philosophy, the philosophy of the love of a human being. This masterpiece Niccolo dell'Arca left us takes your divine inspiration to Heaven and the air around the stars above.
