I’m pretty sure you know this #frescoes very well.... #Michelangelo at the #sistinechapel ..... #vaticancity#rome#italy
I’m pretty sure you didn’t know that After the pope Julius II ask Michelangelo to pain it, he run away from the city and was hidden for 2 years for fear to do the frescoes. Why?
1) he was a sculptor not a painter
2) he didn’t agree to the vision of the pope on how the frescoes have to look like
But his #persistence and how should be done granted him the major art in human kind..... So before you decide to give up on something, stop and think on how not to stop persevering you dreams and how to stop pushing no matter how hard it looks like!!!! #goals#thursdaymindset
Painting like Michelangelo did in the Sistine Chapel! We stuck paper under the table and then the campers had to lay on the floor to paint! One of the campers, as I was explaining what the plan was, asked “so when we’re done, we’re going to hang our pictures on the ceiling, right?” I don’t know why i didn’t think of doing that, but my response to her was: umm...yes. That’s exactly what we are going to do Sometimes kids have way better ideas than me ♀️♀️#create#artweek#sistinechapel#painting#paint
This morning we went on The Roman Guy's "Privileged Entrance" Vatican tour w/Sistine Chapel from 730am to 1100am (8 adults, 5 kids). Vatican City is a city-state surrounded by Rome, HQ's of the Roman Catholic Church. It's home to the Pope & iconic art/architecture. Its Vatican Museums house ancient Roman sculptures and the Sistine Chapel, famous for Michelangelo’s ceiling. #Rome#Italy#sparlingbrothers#wanderoften#travel#vatican#michelangelo#sistinechapel#theromanguy
