the Sistine Chapel: Michelangelo's Other Great Work is Last Judgment

Michelangelo's Other Great Work is Last Judgment

Michelangelo's other great work is "The Last Judgment," on the altar wall. This powerful work centers on Christ the Judge, who compels the damned to the underworld with his left hand and lifts up the saved to heaven with his right. Surrounding Christ are the planets, the sun and saints.
