Michelangelo. Clever Dude.

Just read something on Scientific American about how Michelangelo hid anatomical drawings in the paintings on the  sistine chapels ceiling.

And yes i was reading Scientific American and i am indeed English.

My favourite thing from these drawings is an apparent voice box of God coming from the ‘Brain stem of Man’ which is so cool, what a clever dude. Genius.

Here is a quote from the site.

‘Is the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel a 500 year-old puzzle that is only now beginning to be solved? What was Michelangelo saying by construction the voice box of God out of the brain stem of man? Is it a sacrilege or homage?

I am not going to go into detail so here is the site.


Okay sorry but the linking doesn’t seem to be working.
