There is beautiful interplay in the blues and the golds of the Michelangelo board. The prominent imagery seems to especially invite the viewer into the imaginations of the artists.
The well-known events of the faith are all here, but the Michelangelo board also offers the conversion of Saul, Jonah being tossed to the whale, and Daniel in the den of lions—three stories I don’t find as often as other story events in the great artwork of the past.
Adam and Eve’s story here is very interesting on this board. The usage of the serpent by Satan is portrayed vividly by a very artistic imagining of a lizard/dragon/snake/human looking form. The head of this body really doesn’t look very alarming until a further look at the fullness of the form. It expresses such interesting symbolism about the great deceiver.
There is also an eerie section of art from the Sistine Chapel which is reputed to depict, among other things, one of the places where a self-portrait of Michelangelo is featured. I feel that this board reminds more than others of the desperateness of our need for redemption. The reminders of its assurance are there as well.
This art shape fits well in those narrow, horizontal spaces we all have that can seem empty, perhaps covering an ugly unused outlet of a backsplash or to break up the order of a bookshelf.
