15 Fascinating Facts: The Sistine Chapel | Gray Line Rome


( . . . visit the Vatican!  I wonder just how many people are even looking at the floor when they visit the Sistine Chapel?  They don’t allow picture taking, and they don’t really allow you to linger very long, so UP is much more important than DOWN when you’re there.  Not really enough time to get a sore neck!  Maybe, for the privileged few who might get a private viewing, you might notice the floor.  But, for all I know, I might have been walking on Armstrong Solarium tiles, or something, when we visited the vaunted – and vaulted – venue.  I read – somewhere – that occasionally someone comes away from the tour unimpressed.  Are they kidding me??!!

All of today’s clue words are in the Pantheon of the ralis95 clue word database.  Five of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “syprat” in an earlier Jumble.  I started writing SCIENCE before realizing that was seven letters, and it took a couple of looks to see ANYHOW.  The answer letter layout was forceful fourteen letter jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  The cartoon’s dialog and the quotation marks in the final answer slots were the big giveaways for me.

Fine cartoon of Michelangelo and Pope Julius II, and some church workers.  The chapel itself was built by Pope Sixtus IV some 27 years prior to the famous ceiling painting, which is why it’s called the Sistine Chapel.  There already was a fresco of a blue night sky, with golden stars, that had been painted by Piero Matteo d’Amelia, but I guess Julius II wasn’t much into the natural world, so he commissioned Michelangelo to tell some supernatural stories.  It’s considered one of the world’s great masterpieces, so I guess it was a good decision to do . . . the redo.  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Oh, yeah! And it looks like Jeff has been working out! I also like the Jumble “J” up top. And, something interesting is going on in the lower left part of the group scene. Something I wouldn’t expect to see in a church! Thanks, Ange!

    LOL! It does! And yes, I wrote about that in my post, the “J” imposed on the chimney. As for the left side, it’s a pretty close depiction of the actual ceiling. A whole lot going on there! YW, UR,,and take care,,,🙋🏻‍♀️
