Mysterious Michelangelo

Categories: Categorie 1 |

An article in the New York Times about how Michelangelo allegedly "hid" a view of the brain stem in God's neck in the Separation of Light and Dark fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.  One wonders why!  Was he somehow saying that our "dark" side is located in the brain stem?  Who can say…  but the arguments in the article as to the likelihood of this being an accidental resemblance are compelling…  especially given that Renaissance artists loved to play the game of hidden visual puns…
