Brains on the Brain


Two Johns Hopkins professors say they found one of Michelangelo’s rare anatomical drawings in a panel high on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel: they maintain the artist hid a drawing of the underside of the brain and the brain stem on the neck of God.

The Brain in God's Throat?

Yeah, I couldn't see it either.

The Vatican, as near as I can make out, wasn't bothered for a comment.

I suppose one could say that the J.H. professors' observation was a bit on the brainless side...:-)
