      I thought so. The Sistine Chapel is a perfect example of how much we used to appreciate art and the lengths one would go through to make their artistic visions a reality.

      This remarkable accomplishment always reminds me of one of my favorite classic movies depicting the painting of the Sistine Chapel, The Agony and the Ecstacy, in which Pope Julius II (Rex Harrison) bellowed "When will you make an end?" Charlton Heston's Michelangelo responded with sarcasm, "When I am finished." In a little more than 4 years, Michaelangelo painted over 5,000 square feet of ceiling with more than 300 figures in the frescoes. And, as you may recall, Michaelangelo was actually a sculptor and not a painter!

      Making this virtual tour available to those of us who may never travel to see it in person is wonderful. This how the Internet can enrich our lives!

    Beautiful. Imagine the love and patience it took to create that.

      I guess it's safe to say that he wasn't afraid of heights.
