Just days after it was placed in Saint Peter's, Michelangelo overheard a person remark that the work was done by Christoforo Solari, another sculptor from Lombard. That night in a fit of rage, Michelangelo took hammer and chisel and placed the following inscription on the sash running across Mary's chest in lapidary letters:
MICHEL ANGELUS BONAROTUS FLORENT FACIBAT
(Michelangelo Buonarroti, Florentine, made this).
