Sistine Chapel or Sixteenth Chapel?

By  | 

The title just shows how culturally illiterate I am.  I thought it was the Sixteenth Chapel and was standing right next to the fifteenth one.   I am not a fan of these types of things. To be in this chapel would be cool and then after 5 minutes, I would start thinking about a beer, this site, chicks tits or did I get my bet in on the football game.  I am really not that shallow of a person, but I just can’t get into things like this.  So, for all who are like me check out this link.  You can experience the Sistine Chapel  all while sitting at home.  Who’s the man?   Yes, I am.

The Sistine Chapel ceiling, painted by Michelangelo between 1508 and 1512, at the commission of Pope Julius II, is one of the most renowned artworks of the High Renaissance. The ceiling is that of the large Papal Chapel built within the Vatican between 1477 and 1480 by Pope Sixtus IV after whom it is named the Sistine Chapel. The chapel is the location for Papal Conclaves and many important services.[1]

The ceiling’s various painted elements comprise part of a larger scheme of decoration within the Sistine Chapel which includes the large fresco The Last Judgment on the sanctuary wall, also by Michelangelo, wall paintings by a team of the most highly regarded painters of the late 15th century including Botticelli and Perugino, and a set of large tapestries by Raphael, the whole illustrating much of the doctrine of the Catholic Church.[2][3]

Central to the ceiling decoration are nine scenes from the Book of Genesis of which the Creation of Adam is the best known, having an iconic standing equalled only by Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, the hands of God and Adam being reproduced in countless imitations
