sistinechapel Sistine Chapel – Saying that something you did is your ‘Sistine Chapel’ is by far the best compliment you could ever get. And there’s a good reason why we use the Pope’s residence in the Vatican as an analogue to an excellent work done; the famous 12,000 square feet mural was painted by none other than the virtuous Michelangelo during the early 16th century.

The Vatican’s very own website has released a memorizing interactive platform for exploring the Sistine Chapel. The large screen view allows you to zoom in and out of and navigate through one of humanity’s most precious artistic creations. Accompanied by an A-Capella church music, watching the Sistine Chapel on your computer screen will convince you for a few minutes that you are actually right there in Rome. This is truly amazing and awe-inspiring. Enjoy!
