    Comments: The God with his wingless angels has got a purposely-distorted anatomy, to give expression to the act of creation. It is most visible in his arms. The one pointed to the moon is twisted in the elbow. And if you look carefully, you will notice that it is bigger than the one in the foreground. Michelangelo gives us an impression of correction of perspective, because he put the background arm in the shadow so it looks smaller.

    Comments: In studying this art work,I am impressed with the power it exudes.THE LORD is shown as an older entity.The gray hair,beard,and facial appearance. However,this is a strong,forceful GOD.He has a robust build,and personifies power.
    THE EXPRESSION in His eyes is resolute,stern, but not angry or cruel.Again,we see the wingless angeli.I believe the only angel displaying wings, is HIS Angel bearing Candelabrum figure.
