Sistine Chapel

The Sistine Chapel is the official residence of the Pope in Vatican City, Italy.   Michaelangelo painted 12,000 square feet of the chapel ceiling.  It is believed to be his best work as a painter.  The iconic image above is of the hand of God giving life to Adam.  It is probably the best known fresco from the chapel, but there are hundreds of others.

The couple of images below are not actually from the Sistine Chapel.  :)
