San Pietro in Vincoli: Moses has horns!

Moses has horns!

Michelangelo's statue of Moses on the tomb of Pope Julius II. According to Wikipedia, "Moses is depicted with horns, as opposed to 'the radiance of the Lord', due to the similarity in the Hebrew between the word for 'beams of light' and 'horns'."
