The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo

Best Blogger Tips

Monday 2 January 2012

The art work that I have captioned today is none other than "The Creation of Adam" by Michaelangelo Buonarroti. Most of you will know that it is located on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel (not the sister chapel that I grew up thinking it was). Perhaps I should highlight as I have before that I am no expert on art, but this picture is amazing for all it says about the relationship between God and man (primarily the great effort that God is going to reach Adam, and the almost complete apathy that Adam is showing towards God).

Anyway, here is my captioned picture of it:

PS. I think I have decided to call this section of my blog "The Art of Captioning". Not sure how many I will get through, but if you have any suggestions of either art works or even captions, let me know I will do them up.
