10) Idealism

Idealism is a more specific type of distortion that depicts something more perfect than what it naturally is.  Any flaws are corrected.

 This represents idealism because the Virgin appears to be very young, about the same age her son who is laying in her arms.  Michelangelo may have sculpted her this way to show her timelessness, but nevertheless, it is unrealistic in an idealistic way.
