Recreation of The Creation of Adam Decorative Mural

By Morgan Bricca August 16, 2022

This mural recreates a scene from Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam with a trompe l-oeil molding on a grand foyer ceiling for Sal Gonzalez. Among the clouds and putti (the little cherubs) Sal requested to commemorate his deceased brother. Can you see his face in the clouds? (Read more about this project here.)
