As long as we are looking at ceilings …
This is too freakin’ clever.
As James Clark of Houston, Texas worked on dioramas and paintings, he realized he had a great oportunity to recreate the Sistine Ceiling Frescos by Michelangelo in his studio barn. Among his gables you will find:
- “And then, He Created Speedo Briefs” to compensate for Michelangelo’s sense of humor in giving his robust male figures small infantile genitals.
- “God Creates the Sun and the Moon” in which God changes into his customary pink nighty.
- “Day of Judgement” where St. Bartholomew is holding a knife in one hand and his flayed skin in the other – on which Michelangelo’s face has been substituted with the artist’s face.
- “Beheading of Holofernes” with gruesome detail of the head carried by Judith’s maid while the limbs of Holofernes’ decapitated body thresh about in the next room.
