it was amazing

I loved getting a glimpse into the mind of one the world's greatest artists. I heard it said that you knew you were an artist if you had to create just as much as you had to breath. This about sums up the passion Michelangelo had for creating masterpieces. I also enjoyed learning more about the Renaissance and the complex relationship between the Pope and other nobles and the artists of the time.
