This religious-themed Creation of Adam tapestry wall hanging showcases Michelangelo’s exquisite work in lush colors. This tapestry is perfect for anyone who wants to add a touch of religious or renaissance art to their home. Featuring Michelangelo’s iconic painting, the Creation of Adam, this piece is sure to impress guests and add a touch of elegance to any room.
The Creation of Adam is a fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo. It was painted from 1508 to 1512. The painting depicts the moment when God breathed life into Adam, the first man.
Many have misinterpreted the painting to show God and Adam shaking hands. In fact, their fists are touching but it does not depict a handshake. The exact moment of creation, when God breathes life into Adam, as depicted by Michelangelo with a small blast of wind emanating from his mouth just before reaching Adam’s fingertips, which he is about to touch. People who think the picture shows a handshake might be thinking of Raphael’s version in the School of Athens.
Michelangelo painted an enormous amount for this small space – over three hundred figures. This had never been attempted before in a fresco. Some parts are unfinished.
A tapestry wall hanging features a unique combination of thread colors and weaves that creates a unique art experience that changes with each viewing angle.
