The Last Judgment

 Michelangelo’s Last Judgment, painted behind the main altar of the Sistine Chapel between 1534 and 1541, is one of the most heralded masterpieces in Western Art. Since its completion, artists and critics have been astonished by Michelangelo’s total mastery of composition and human anatomy, but that doesn’t mean we have to take every stroke of The Last Judgment seriously. Check out some of its details (here).



  1. talk about an unfortunate snake bite.

    The painting being about the 2nd Coming reminds of me Christians so sure that the "end times are soon". There's actually a verse in the bible where Jesus says he would return in his disciples lifetimes. He's about 1900 years too late.

  2. hahahahaha the snake bite....the paint brush is mighter than the sword as well it seems....
    some funny hidden messages in there....
