In the central section of the masterwork painted in the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, Michelangelo painted with mastery three scenes from the Genesis chapters from the Holy Bible. Il Divino, a nickname earned by the grandmaster because of the frescoes he painted in the holy site, illustrated the creation of Adam and Eve.
This work depicts their later expulsion from paradise after they assaulted the tree of knowledge with vivid colors and very detailed shading, inspiring the feeling of awe in the chapel visitors. Between the three scenes, there are sets of two nude angels on each side, acting as a frame separating the scenes.
In the bottom, one of the most iconic and replicated paintings of all ages, the moment that God imbues Adam with the divine spark. With their fingers barely touching, God is represented as an elder with a long beard and a serious expression, surrounded by a red cape and embracing Eve with his left arm. Accompanying the Holy Father, twelve nude characters are depicted inside the cape, supporting God’s actions. On top of a rock, lies Adam, weak and limp, looking at God and gathering all his strength to reach the divine.
The scene in the middle shows the moment that God takes one rib from Adam’s side, who is sleeping, bringing to life the perfect wife, Eve. Portrayed with a robust constitution, one of Michelangelo’s trademark, Adam’s wife is in a humble position, with both of her arms raised and begging for her Father’s wisdom. God is using a royal purple cloak, above a red gown. He touches the grass with his feet, barefoot, and with one hand raised, he grants Eve his grace and love.
In the last scene, on the top of the painting, Michelangelo depicts the moment that Adam and Eve are caught stealing an apple from the tree of knowledge, which leads them to be expelled from the Garden of Eden. In reference to Lilith, a snake is wrapping the tree, with feminine features, enticing the couple to steal from the tree and giving an apple to Eve. Adam holds down a branch of the tree, helping and agreeing with the theft. On a side scene, an angel, dressed in a red robe, is shown threatening Adam with a sword, pushing him and his wife to leave the holy site.

Note that for safety reasons we can only frame up to a certain size. Once the maximum size is reached the framing option is automatically disabled.
If you are planning to frame your painting yourself,
use an existing frame, or frame it locally, you may choose to order your painting with a stretching service,
meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.
If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.

All orders ship express and usually arrive within 4-5 days from the shipping date. Due to shipping restraints, many of our framed, stretched, and oversize paintings may take 6-21 days for arrival depending on the safest route determined by the postal service.
