Pieta sculpture in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart

The Pieta sculpture is located in the first chapel directly to the right of the main altar in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.

The famed Ivan Mestrovic Pieta, a Carrara marble statue, was first shown in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It was loaned to the University of Notre Dame by the former Croatian artist-in-residence.
