Every time I see the vault of Sistina chapel
, I feel emotioned thinking to the miracle of Michelangelo, an old man working hardly in a very difficult position and producing such a marvellous thing for us

Michelangelo
Paints the vault of Sistina.
His old hands are firm.

Youthful fervency.

No matter his age.

Plenty of colors.

Magic miracle.

For billion of eyes.

Beautyful dream.

Not going to lie...my inner child was hoping this was about Michelangelo the Ninja Turtle. How wrong I was. :) Either way, this was a very great dedication to a man who made history. A man for the ages. Excellent job!
