Inspired by Michelangelo

For this Cut Loose Art piece of furniture, I looked to the work of one of the most famous and revered artists of all time – Michelangelo. These iconic hands form part of a panel in the Sistine Chapel that Michelangelo completed in 1512.

Here are 3 facts about the chapel artwork that you may not have known…

  • The work is one of the first to depict God as a man with a long flowing beard. 
  • Michelangelo’s interest in anatomy is said to be evident in the shape of God’s cloak seen in this panel. It is thought to be a depiction of a brain and represents the source of man’s intelligence.
  •  The panel is called the Creation of Adam and is one of the most replicated religious artworks. It has found its way into cartoons, lego, film posters such as E.T. and , of course, countless murals and interior designs…
