#4: God Separated Water from Heavens (Michelangelo Sistine Chapel fresco)

Didn’t forget this (promised to do 34 days for 34 paintings).

Michelangelo Sistine Chapel fresco #4: God Separates Water from Heavens.

Please use Google translation, the Chinese part’s idea is very intriguing. I read it somewhere.



Before God created mankind in the sixth day, he focused his attention on creating the world. Michelangelo freely interpreted the individual acts of the creation of water, land, heaven, light and earth and brought them together. He focused on the presentation of God as a creative elemental force. This painting presumably depicts the separation of water from the heavens. God breaks through from the background and uses a sweeping gesture to control the events below.
