On the heels of our recent X-ray adventure in Egypt, we visit Rome, one of the centres of art in Italy for the 3rd edition of the series. The depicted image of almost touching hands derives from a renowned ceiling fresco by the Italian painter Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel in Rome. The divine breath of life leaps from God's finger to the one of a human. This famous gesture represents the Creation of Adam - the first man. Next to the hands of God and his divine creation, a part of another monumental work by Michelangelo - The Last Judgement - is revealed.
