“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”
also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope
the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him
but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high
and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair
what a badass
It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job
In the middle of my Zombie run mission, I had to start hauling arse because I was being chased by a rather hungry zombie that wanted a bite of my thunder thighs. As I was running away like a bat out of hell (with the song “Runaway” by Hail the Villian giving me an extra adrenaline boost) I turned a blind corner and came face to face with this statue from hell.
It scared the shit out of me and I let out probably one of the most girly screams of my life. I seriously thought I was going to have a heart attack. For sure, this is not a statue you want to randomly run into when doing a Zombies, RUN! Mission.
