Michelangelo Buonarroti's fresco painting on the Sistine chapel
ceiling portraying The Creation of Adam


RUSSIA(SOVIET UNION)
Scott 4301a






That's how the ceiling paintings look now after lengthy
restoration.

This site shows before and after restoration.
There are some of the opinion that maybe they should have
left it alone as they believe that it now looks
too brightly coloured and gaudy.

My latest acquisition: Japan 1979. That's all I know. Can someone help fill in the details?

At least it still looks more or less how it's supposed to look, unlike some other recent art restoration atrocities.

Yes there's been some pretty horrible "restorations"
but the worst one in my opinion was the Ecce Homo
monstrosity.




Apparently the 82-year-old "restorer" had the best of intentions
but what a bloody disgrace.
A preschooler could have done better.

When I was at church one Easter Sunday, there was a little boy, maybe five years old, seated near me and drawing a picture of the Crucifixion. If he had discarded it, I would have swooped in and grabbed it. It was definitely a keeper.

And here's the full sheet from the one Kuo just posted. Too bad there's no money to be made in tag team stamping ;)

Speaking of nudes, the USPS rejected my naked self-portrait for a personalized Christmas stamp. My friends and family will be sorely disappointed.
