Venus and Mars

This art piece was made around 1485, by Sandro Botticelli and this artwork represents that Mars, god of war was one of the lovers of Venus god of love. Here Mars is asleep and unarmed while Venus is awake and aware of everything so the mean of this picture is maybe love conquers war or love conquers all.

Last Supper

The Last Supper was made by Leonardo da Vinci in 1495 and was finished in 1498. In the picture Christ says one of you will betray me to all of the 12 apostles. Christ says take this bread because it is my body and take this wine because it is my blood and remember me, and as he is saying that he is reaching over to a glass of wine and a piece of bread.
Leonardo, Last Supper, 1495-98

Sistine Chapel

This art piece was made by Michelangelo Buonarroti in 1508-1512 it is a high renaissance of artwork. The painting represents some of the paintings in the Book of Genesis. Scenes from the beginning of the flood and it was a difficult painting to do because he worked by himself and a lot of people didn't like what he did. Cardinal Biagio said it would of looked better in a wine shop instead of a papal chapel.

Mona Lisa

It was a painting done by Leonardo Da Vinci in 1503-1505 and as you can see that she is resting on a chair and the bottom of the painting is more like old fashion country with a road and a bridge and the top of the panting you have like more of a future like other planet. So it's kinda mysterious about why he painted it like that and it's one of the most famous and most visited paintings today in history.
