    Dear Michelle,

    How about . . .
    The Crucifixion
         Marc Chagall (1943)
         Matthias Grunewald (1510-1515) (from the Isenheim Alterpiece)

         Andrea Del Verrocchio (c. 1465)
         Michelangelo (1501-1504)
         Bernini (1623)

    Some others did the Last Supper
         Tintoretto (1594)
          Dirk Bouts (1464-1468)

    Madonna and Child
         Luca Della Robbia (c. 1455-1460)

    Hope this helps, Leah
    I'd also look up mytholical heroes, I'm sure you'll find a lot there.
