The Sistine Chapel ceiling, painted by Michelangelo between 1508 and 1512, at the commission of Pope Julius II, is one of the most renowned artworks of the High Renaissance. The ceiling is that of the large Chapel built within the Vatican in Rome. Central to the ceiling decoration are nine scenes from the Book of Genesis.
In 1508, Michelangelo was forced into a job he loathed. For 4 years, he struggled with an abusive boss and horrible working conditions, doing a job he wasn't trained to do. In the end, he created one of the greatest works of art man has ever made. That's what makes him a great man. Perhaps those who "can't" handle a difficult job should remember that sometimes the greatest beauty comes out of commitment in spite of difficulty. We are known for our work, not our circumstances.
