Originally intended for the Basilica of St. Peter, \"Moses\" and the tomb were placed instead in the minor church of san pietro in vincoli on the edward esquilin after the death of the pope. This church was patronized by the della rovere family from which Julius was born, and he had been a titular cardinal there. The statue depicts Moses with horns on his head. This is thought to be due to a poor translation of exodus 34: 29-35 per st jerome. Moses is actually described as having \"rays of the skin of his face,\" which Jerome in the vulgate had translated as \"horns\" (see halo). Translation error is possible because the word can mean \"radiated (light)\" or \"pushed horns.
\" Michelangelo felt that this was his most realistic creation. Legend has it that at the end he struck his right knee, ordering: speak now! For he felt that life was the only thing left inside the marble.
There is a scar on the knee that is thought to be the mark of the michelangelo hammer. Our bronze replica of Michelangelo Moses is handmade and was cast using the 'lost wax method'.
