  30. Important points of the Sistine Ceiling ancestors (6)
    • Painted in the lunettes, the darkest areas of the ceiling
    • Ramping penetration connects the wall and ceiling both literally and symbolically, Christ's ancestors connect God and the Popes
    • Figures are depicted as family groups of different ages and genders, not just as old men, unprecedented technique
    • Uses color to illuminate figures, acknowledging their dark location with bright, bold hues
    • Invented clothing that was not necessarily accurate
    • Emphasis on loins and procreation
  31. Important points of the Sistine Ceiling's Prophets and Sibyls (4)
    • Hold up the vault, metaphor for their role as foundational beings
    • Occupy the lightest areas of the ceiling, indicating their knowledge
    • Figures are conventionalized, holding books or scrolls as symbols of Christian or Hebrew knowledge, accompanied by angels
    • Figures get much larger as you move from the entrance to the altar wall, balancing out the reduced cast of characters in the adjacent narrative scenes
  32. Important points of the Sistine Ceiling's Separation of Light and Darkness narrative scene (3)
    • One side of God is light, the other is dark
    • Appears to be floating in a void, unstable
    • God has outline of breasts, MB may be playing with the idea that god creates man and woman "out of his own likeness"
  33. Important points of Congregation of the Waters (2)
    • Horizontality
    • Outline of breasts
  34. Important points of Creation of Sun, Moon, and Plants (3)
    • God's arms are in the compass-like position used to create a circular world
    • God's actions follow circular pattern, shown flying toward the plants at the bottom left in a circular route
    • MB shows that motion, time, and growth have now entered the story
  35. Important points of Creation of Adam (6)
    • Adam is seated in a "river god" pose, common in antiquity, actively inativated
    • If God's finger follows the circular pattern, it ends up at woman under his arm, possibly Eve
    • Adam's knee pointed toward the woman may be another allusion to Eve
    • God touches child with his other hand's two fingers, may be Jesus
    • God still has breasts and cinched waist
    • Dark angels may represent those that rebelled against God and prompted the creation of Man
  36. Important points of Creation of Eve (6)
    • Eve represents both scripture stories by masking exactly where she is emerging from
    • Adam sleeps, indicating his prophetic status
    • God is the only one standing upright, barely fits in the frame
    • Eve is created by command, no physical contact
    • God no longer has breast outline, "likeness" has been expressed
    • Eve is both getting up and bending down, in prayer
  37. Important points of Temptation and Expulsion (4)
    • In Temptation, Eve reaches for fruit with twisted torso, and Adam is just as guilty, not "seduced by Eve" as is commonly portrayed
    • Eve points to between her legs, indicating the consequence of sin, which is childbirth
    • In Expulsion, Eve has aged, Adam is crying and fighting off the angel
  38. Important points of Moses from the Julius Tomb (8)
    • Only figure we know of that was planned from the beginning
    • Seated with tablets of law pressed next to him hold him up, like the sling of David--almost part of his body, not held in his hand
    • Both hands hold his beard
    • Hand rested on tablet is in gesture of blessing or speech
    • Furrowed brow, exagerrated eye sockets
    • Horns depict old connection between horn and light (same word in Hebrew), was said to come down from Mt Sinai "horned"
    • One side closed and flat, the other active and open
    • Leans forward with elongated torso to meet the viewer's sightline, indicates he was meant to go on the second story of the tomb
  39. Important points of Leah and Rachel of the Julius Tomb (3)
    • Sisters who became symbols of the active and contemplative life

    • Abandoned by MB when he found a black vein in the marble
    • Started a new one 1518-19, completed by his assistant Pietro Urbano
    • Unusual to show full frontally nude Christ as an adult
    • Ambiguous whether cross holds Christ up, or Christ holds the cross up, but active front foot and planted back foot indicate cross is doing the work

    • Accompanied by Dawn and Dusk statues, which are "times of contemplation"
  46. Dawn and Dusk statues

    • Both lying down with heads back, chests open, same arm positions
    • Dawn is in the process of removing her veil ("night"), raising herself in half-dreamy state
    • Dusk is in the process of settling down, leaned back, about to cover himself with night
  47. Day and Night statues (4)
    • Day opens himself up, but still shielded from view
    • Night is exposed, but in the process of closing herself up
    • Night has "nursing breasts," as night was a time of nursing
    • Opposite positions of their Dusk and Dawn counterparts

    • Madonna's legs crossed in "rude" gesture
    • Madonna rotates her body to the left, while Jesus darts in the opposite direction

    • Impossible to count the number of figures
