Michelangelo's Aurora. I did is as an acrylic painting assignment from a photo.

 It is originally a part of The Sagrestia Nuova. Here is the description of Dawn from your favorite encyclopedia: 

Dawn is a sculpture by Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo, executed for the Medici Chapel in the area of the tomb of Lorenzo de' Medici in Florence, Italy.

It is part of a second pair (the second being Dusk), which followed Day and Night in his work on the Chapel.

That is all they had to say about her. It's done in black, gray, and white.
