I’m taking your hand as we walk through the Vatican in Rome, Italy. We will look up at the magnificent Sistine Chapel paintings. We will marvel at how famous artist Michelangelo worked for over four years in paint and wet plaster to give the world these stories from the Bible. Then we will gaze at his beautifully carved sculptures that seem to live and breathe! This is ART at its best! Ready? Let’s go!
“The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.”– Michelangelo
