Benefactor loans statue to St. Mark's

SALT LAKE CITY — A benefactor wishing to express his gratitude for the exceptional care provided to a family member by St. Mark's Hospital has arranged for a generous gift — the loan of a full-sized, nearly exact replica of Michelangelo's La Pieta.

Joseph Bishop has loaned the replica to St. Mark's Hospital, 1200 E. 3900 South.

This famous work of art depicts the body of Jesus on the lap of his mother Mary after the Crucifixion. The original La Pieta can be found in St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City

This replica is licensed by the Vatican Observatory Foundation. The marble sculpture is faithful to the original in its detail and subtlety.

Its premier unveiling occurred in January 2010 during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City.

This is believed to be the first time it has been displayed in a health care venue anywhere in the world. The public is invited to personally experience the sculpture through the end of the year in the main lobby at St. Mark's Hospital.
