Creation of Adam

Above is Michelangelos creation of The Creation of Adam. HE painted this in 1508. The picture represents god creating Adam for being the first man. This piece is located on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome. This explains Humanism because it shows Adam and how he has a love for god because he was his creator and his mentor and Adam looked up to him. I find this piece interesting because it describes how man can look up to god in many ways.
