This painting is called "The Creation of Adam" and was painted by Michelangelo between 1511-1512. The painting is located in the Sistine's Chapel's which resides in the vatican city. It is a fresco painting and one of the most recognizable paintings ever. I chose this painting because of how detailed and powerful it is. The painting depicts "Adam" who is believed to be the first man ever according to Roman Catholicism, and his creator God, both masterfully painted. As well as angels with God and a detailed portal showing where they came from. I liked this painting because seeing how religion was depicted during that time in history is very interesting.
