My dear friends, I would like to take a moment to relax and enjoy a coffee break with you during this absolutely insane time.
A very curious fact caught my attention, and I wanted to share it with you. I think you might find it interesting, especially if you are into art.
Do you know why the hands of God and Adam are not touching in Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam”?
“The Creation of Adam” is one of the most outstanding masterpieces created by Michelangelo between 1508-1512. The fresco is a fragment of a magnificent composition on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican Museum.
On the fresco, God’s finger is fully outstretched in his attempt to reach Adam. In contrast, Adam’s hand is relaxed; his finger never touches God’s.
Michelangelo is using symbolism to show us that while God is always present, the decisions we make are ours alone.
This is an incredibly bitter truth today.
I look forward to seeing you next week.
