"Creation of Adam"

Michelangelo Buonarroti - Frescoes - 280 x 570 cm - 1510 - (Cappella Sistina (Vatican City, Italy))

The Creation of Man is one of the most notable artworks from the Renaissance period, it is a fresco painted on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, commissioned by Pope Julius II. The fresco illustrates a passage from the bible, “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him" (Gen. 1:27) and portrays God as a bearded man with a cloak draping him and his hand extending to touch Adam's left hand but only their fingers meet in between. With God are twelve figures that have been interpreted as Eve, who is protected by God's left arm, and the souls of the children of Eve and Adam. Behind god and the twelve figures is a figure that is an anatomically accurate depiction of the human brain. Alternatively, it has also been interpreted as a uterus, the green hanging scarf as the umbilical cord. In the image, it was noticed that Adam has an extra concealed rib. It is important to know that Michelangelo had an in-depth knowledge of human anatomy and would incorporate his knowledge into his art.
