Photographer's Note

The overt subject matter of the ceiling is the doctrine of humanity's need for Salvation as offered by God through Jesus. It is a visual metaphor of Humankind's need for a covenant with God. The Old Covenant of the Children of Israel through Moses and the New Covenant through Christ had already been represented around the walls of the chapel.(Source:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sistine_Chapel_ceiling)

Thank You.
