Michelangelo - Sistine Chapel - The Creation of Adam

We just learned about Michelangelo's painting of the Sistine Chapel - Separation of Land and Water.

Another famous paintings Michelangel did on the Sistine Chapel was The Creation of Adam.

In this painting Adam is on the left with his arm reaching to the right, and God is on the right with his arm reaching out toward Adam on the left.

This is supposed to be the moment that God reached out and gave Adam life.
