Inside the Sistine Chapel two figures were painted by Michelangelo two hierarchies of figures opposite each other, the first resulting from the canonical reading of sacred texts, the second from a sense of beauty by Michelangelo.
Among them the Libyan Sibyl assumes a prominent place.
IIt is a figure that contains a particular movement in power around a limb, the foot, bringing to life the movement of the person.
The study in charcoal made by Michelangelo is still visible at the Metropolitan Art Museum in New York.
In this 'challenge' , Iacopo Lastrucci has devoted his attention initially to the color and tone of each stone, spending a few months to find the exact match to the painting.
Today, after an artistic work began 3 years ago, its been completed the creation of the Sibyl in Florentine mosaic technique (measures 98 cm. x 74 cm. / 39" x 30" ). You can see more details in the picture 's works exhibited here.
