MICHELANGELO TRIVIA VII

61) Which is the most finished of Michelangelo's Prigioni?


The Bearded Slave is the most finished of the Florentine Prigioni, a series of larger-than-life chained figures in various poses, leaning on pilasters which were planned to frame niches in the Tomb of Pope Julius II. The Bearded Slave gets his name from his thick, curly beard. The way his muscular torso twists indicates a deep knowledge of anatomy, typical of the best works of Michelangelo,

62) In the Sistene Chapel, What did Michelangelo paint behind the Prophet Jonah?


Behind the figure of Jonah, Michelangelo painted a large fish, a reference to the fact that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.

63) Who is the central figure of Michelangelo's The Last Judgment?


The entire painting revolves around Christ, while the saved are rejoicing and the damned are taken off to the underworld in darkness.
