There’s no doubt that art is beautiful. No one would ever deny that a Picasso or a van Gogh was a masterpiece. But art is so much more than that. It’s is like a temporal and cultural fingerprint that identifies what the artist and the people of the country they represent were like in a specific time period. Now most of us are familiar with artwork like Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel. But most of us should take a little more time looking at the small details of these famous pieces because there are hidden gems behind each work of art.
But many people think that Michelangelo, the master of human anatomy, was trying to tell us something. In the area where God touches Adam with his fingers, it seems like God is tapping into his brain. If this interpretation is accurate, then Michelangelo was likely saying that God gave Adam life as well as the gift of free will so he could make his own decisions.
