Jonah - Sistine Chapel - Michelangelo

We just learned about Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel painting of the prophets Isaiah and Daniel.

Another prophet that Michelangelo painted on the ceiling was Jonah.

Jonah is shown with a giant fish in his painting, because in the Bible he was swallowed by a fish.
The painting of Jonah is on the far right end of the ceiling, and Jonah is looking up toward the painting of the Separation of Light from Darkness.
