Question two. What was the point of using a peculiar angle?
In the fresco “The Creation of the Sun, Moon, and Plants” the artist unexpectedly places not one but two images of the Creator.
In the other frescos – “The Separation of Light and Darkness”, “The Separation of Land and Water”, “The Creation of Adam”, “The Creation of Eve” , the Lord is presented as a single figure, which is fully logical.
Moreover, in the left portion of the fresco “The Creation of the Sun, Moon, and Plants” Michelangelo presents the Lord of Sabaoth, to put it delicately, as seen from the back.
A very odd view.
In the other frescoes, the Creator has loose garments, but in this one, the cloth is tight-fitting.
For what reason?
