More Information

You would be able to see this today in the Sistine Chapel, Italy. This is so significant because the size of it and it was very complex compared to most paintings at the time and also, because of all the detail he put in it. This piece of art resembles humanism because if you look closely at the photograph of it, you will see many imperfect people.

What I find interesting is how he got the painting on the roof of the chapel.
