The Creation of Adam - Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo - Art Poster
The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo
The Creation of Adam illustrates the Biblical creation narrative from the Book of Genesis in which God gives life to Adam, the first man.
Sistine Chapel ceiling frescosare made up of nine scenes from the Book of Genesis and five smaller scenes which are supported by four naked youths, known as the Ignudi. Between the scenes are twelve men and women who are said to have predicted the birth of Jesus. Above each window are lists of Christ’s ancestors and their portraits. In the spandrels are eight more groups of biblical figures and the entire ceiling is contained by four corner pendentives which illustrate four different biblical stories.
The overarching story ofThe Sistine Chapel ceiling frescosdepicts God’s creation of the world and of man, humanity’s fall from grace and punishment up until the birth of Jesus, the savior of humanity. In the composition, Michalengelo combines symbolism from the church with Renaissance thinking and Humanist philosophy in a remarkably non-conflicting manner. The Ignudi are the most obviously non-biblical figures. The nine main scenes depicted are: The Separation of Light and Darkness; The Creation of the Sun, Moon and Earth; The Separation of Land and Water; The Creation of Adam; The Creation of Eve; The Temptation and Expulsion; The Sacrifice of Noah; The Great Flood; and The Drunkenness of Noah.
