This says it all Exquisite and stunning from all imaginable elements of man’s ability to create, express and communicate emotion at an incomparable level.

I’m more a fan of his sculptures, rather than his paintings. David of course, but I like Bacchus best.

Michelangelo was good in the first Ninja Turtles film, but his best work came in the tv series.

The Sistine Chapel ceiling. I also think the restorers didn’t understand why Michelangelo did it that way.
There is also a remarkable statue he did of Moses. It has Michelangelo’s face, with horns, thanks to a misinterpretation from the Bible.

Michelangelo’s statuary is easier for me to absorb than his massive paintings, so, of course, I’d have to choose David.

He was just so amazing. I have to vote for @ibstubro‘s choice.

I had a magazine cut out of the Hand of God in my classroom. I looked at it often. The detail is incredible. Plus, it always reminded me of my husband’s fingers. He’s of Greek descent, so maybe I’m just imagining the similarities.
