Moses Statue by Michelangelo, Rome, Italy.  Located in St. Peters in Chains church. Michelangelo always thought he was liberating a figure from the marble block that was already in it. He certainly did a fabulous job with Moses.

Sistine Chapel - Rome, Italy The Sistine Chapel is the best-known chapel of the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the Pope in the Vatican City. It is famous for its architecture and its decoration by Renaissance artists including Michelangelo. Michelangelo painted 12,000 sq ft of the chapel ceiling between 1508 and 1512. The ceiling, and especially The Last Judgment (1535–1541), is widely believed to be Michelangelo's crowning achievement in painting.

Vatican Museums (Italy). 'Rome boasts many artistic highlights, but few are as overpowering as Michelangelo’s frescoes in the Sistine Chapel.
