Few sculptures are as famous as Michelangelo's David, and if you've ever seen it you'll understand why.

Animation  Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling  How can man get back to paradise? That’s pretty much the story of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel. But in terms of beauty, the thing I think still makes an impact when you take away everything you can look up in books is the amazing, distorted animation of what you’re seeing.
