Forbidden Messages In Michelangeo's Frescoes?
According to Roy Doliner and Rabbi Benjamin Blech, authors of "The Sistine Secrets," Kabbalah is the key to cracking the code to many of Michelangelo's hidden messages, including those in the famous panel "The Creation of Adam."
"A surgeon went into the Sistine Chapel, took a look at this [fresco]. He said to himself, wait, this is Anatomy 101, and this is actually a cross section of the brain, the righthand side of the brain," Blech said.
"Now, what's interesting is in Kabbalah we have different kinds of wisdom," said Doliner. "The right side of the human brain in Kabbalah means wisdom -- chokhma." Could Michelangelo have been illustrating this mystical idea?
