Daniel - Sistine Chapel - Michelangelo

We just learned about Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel painting of Isaiah.

Another of Michelangelo's painting in the Sistine Chapel was of the prophet Daniel.

In the Bible Daniel was a prophet who could tell what people's dreams meant.
His most famous story in the Bible was about the Lion's Den, but in Michelangelo's painting it just shows him thinking and holding a book.
