Motifs From the Sistine Chapel Painting of the Garden Of Eden and the Expulsion
By Randy Dillon

Michelangelo’s painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is considered by many to the the quintessential artwork not only of Michelangelo’s life, but also in the sponsorship of the Roman Catholic Church into the arts. Many refer to the work as Michelangelo’s ceiling.

The modern artist Randy Dillon decided to take upon as a project to create improvisations of two sections of Michelangelo’s Ceiling having to do with the motifs of the Garden of Eden.

In all, there are twelve original works of art with fifteen close-ups to give a better view of how the interpretations played out among the major characters within the theme.

The classic political theory which created the field of political science. Machiavelli wrote the book years before anyone even considered politics a science worth studying. The book was not published until five years after his death. So powerful was the message in this book that the name Machiavellian entered into our collective vocabulary.

“All states, all powers, that have held and hold rule over men have been and are either republics or principalities.”
