|Michelangelo Buonarroti Brief Biography|
Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, commonly known as Michelangelo, (March 6, 1475 - February 18, 1564) was a Renaissance sculptor, architect, painter, and poet. Biography of Michelangelo Buonarroti, Sculptor / Painter / Architect of Rome
About the painting, 'The Ignudi' (Naked Youth) Section of the Sistine Chapel Ceiling (1509 - 1512)
The Ignudi (Italian adjective nudo, meaning “naked”) are the 20 athletic, nude, male figures that Michelangelo painted at each of the four corners of the five smaller scenes of Creation. Because they were not relevant to the themes of the piece, Michelangelo’s ignudi outraged several pontiffs.
There are many speculations about the meaning of ignudi. They are naked humans, perhaps representing the naked truth.
Considering that Michelangelo regularly employed male models even for his female figures, they could represent Michelangelo’s concept of the human potential for perfection. Again, this could be interpreted through classical Greek view that “the man is the measure of all things”.'Ignudi' Nude / Naked Youth: Michelangelo Sistine Chapel Ceiling

YOUR SHOP KEEPER: KARENE
My partner (philosopher Geoff Haselhurst) and I are building a large
philosophy website which is the source (and inspiration) for most of
the Philosophy images and quotes in this shop.
Below are some of our favourite philosophers / quotes and links to relevant
pages of our website. Philosophy (which is ultimately about Wisdom from
Truth and Reality) is important to our world (all proceeds from this
shop are used to promote our work on Philosophy).
Thus we also hope that you find our philosophy website interesting!
Cheers, Karene. (August, 2010)
