The Sistine Chapel is probably Michelangelo’s most famous work. It is used in many religious ceremonies. The entire painting is the ceiling of the giant chapel. On the ceiling is paintings and stories of Noah, the creation of the world, and many other religious stories depicted in paintings (shown in image to the left). One of the most famous parts of the Sistine Chapel is the creation of Adam, which shows God creating Adam (shown at the right). This painting reflected the Renaissance art at the time by showing a large background, emotions, and movement.
