This is a group of embossed prints or postcards of images from the frescoes on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. They are male "ignudi:” a phrase coined by Michelangelo to describe the 20 seated male nudes he incorporated into the ceiling frescoes. These figures are interesting in that they do not fit the theme of the paintings, so their true meaning has been a mystery in the art world. Each card measures approximately 6” x 7” and the overall measurement (framed and matted) is 16” wide x 20.5”. The framing is high-end and aptly complements these iconic Renaissance drawings by the "immortal" artist.
