      Michaelangelo. Love what this particular part of the Sistine Chapel means. The space between their fingers represents the sin that separates God from Man. Beautifully said without one word.

      Michelangelo. I think this is symbolic that God has his finger stretched out, yet Adam has his limp which symbolizes that if we want God, all we have to do is reach out to him.WERGD
