The Creation of Modern Adam

Everyone will know Michelangelo’s masterpiece the Creation of Adam, where God’s right arm reaches out to impart the spark of life from his own finger into that of Adam; Adam’s left arm is extended in a pose mirroring God’s, serving as a reminder of the book of Genesis that tells how man is created in the image and likeness of God…

It has been much parodied, including by both the Simpsons and Tenacious D.

Anyway, this is the modern interpretation given to the painting by a couple of very clever American high school students… I think its brilliant.

    “…very clever American high school students”

    Would you happen to know a bit more about the author of this photo? Original source maybe?


  2. It also reminds me of the ceiling in The Victoria PH in Jericho, Oxford: God and Adam can be seen toasting each other with a pint of beer.

    Clearly this photo was taken in Finland, because that is Sandels beer which is Finnish.
