Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni 6 March 1475 – 18 February 1564, known as Michelangelo was an Italian sculptor, painter, architect, poet, and engineer of the High Renaissance who exerted an unparalleled influence on the development of Western art.Considered the greatest living artist in his lifetime, he has since been held as one of the greatest artists of all time.
His figures on the Sistine chapel show a ideal human with perfect proportions. and the more perfect the body and proportions, the more godlike the figure looks and relates to. the figures in the middle are completely nude to emphasize the perfect human body that he wished to present. the figures appear to be male and woman figures hinting at a sort of love relationship, or passion.to me when you take a closer looks some of the male figures adn woman figures appear as there are each pulling for the other to come to their side. it can be interpreted as going to the dark side or good side neither of them wanting to change themselves with a relationship with the other.
towards the bottom of the picture, you see everyone dressed in mostly black, and most of them are adults with the occasional child. indicating great respect and honor for the place. you don’t see children jumping around or adults chatting it looks as if none of the adults are talking out of respect.
