#1: Sistine Chapel Author: Aether, Location: Americas, ItalyPosted: Tue May 20, 2008 6:04 pm ---- The other day I saw a post - forgot where - about some "news" regarding hidden meanings in the ceiling's frescoes.
This sort of ideas are always popping up - a fad after the great discoveries of David Brown. The idea is to sell books, and whatever.
I have seen it on TV, etc. All art historians and in particular experts on Michelangelo reject those theories as UTTER NONSENSE!
REBUTTALS have been published in Italy and elsewhere.

One thing they all agreed on was that this is a beautiful work of art. I have never seen the sistine chapel (hope I will some day) in person and I was glad that the t.v. cameras were able to show the work up close. I was amazed at the details.
