Description

Photograph of a painting in the Sistine Chapel by Ghirlandaio entitled "Calling of the Apostles." This depicts scenes from Christ's early ministry: in the background, on the left and right banks, Christ calls some Apostles to him from their boats. On either side of these two scenes are cliffs. In the foreground, in the center is Christ blessing those same Apostles. On either side of the foreground is a crowd of people dressed in Renaissance style clothing. Up on the hill on the right proper side is the Medici Palace.
