While the image is a flat reproduction, the cracks from the original are depicted cutting across the man's face. This young man is one of the many nude males that are depicted around the boarders of the main sequence of motifs in the central panel of the ceiling. He sits horizontally above God just outside of the "Creation of Adam" scene. Sight: 20 1/2" x 17 1/2". To see the original see: and for more about Michelangelo see:
