Zechariah - Sistine Chapel - Michelangelo

We just learned about Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel painting of the prophets Isaiah, Daniel, Jonah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel,
and Joel.

Another prophet that Michelangelo painted on the ceiling was Zechariah.

In the Bible, Zechariah talked about a savior coming some day as king into Jerusalem.
Michelangelo painted him balding with a white beard, with cherubs behind him and reading a book.
