Michelangelo's secrets in The Last Judgement
Transcript of Michelangelo's secrets in The Last Judgement
To the right side of the turbulent skin there are two men kissing. The whole scene represents the conflict the artist had with his own sexuality. The upsidedown body who is pushed to hell by an angel represents simony, an infamous practice through which the Church used to sell hierarchical positions. The figure has a bag with golden coins and the keys representing the Catholic church. This is one of the most aggresive accusations made by Michelangelo against the Church on this fresco. One of the most graphic images on The Last Judgement is the representation of Lust (sex without love). In this image, a demon is taking Lust to Hell from his testicles. Michelangelo's preference for the male body is quite evident on his female characters. Apart from the unnatural breasts, the figures are strongly masculine. A lot of people get upset when someone points these images to them... Bigotry is a nasty element of our human condition that Michelangelo didn't want to be ruled by... the evidence is there... right in front of your eyes... make your own conclusions.
