Part of Musart Boutique’s original collection Musart on Decks comes this exclusive limited edition of 100 Michelangelo Skateboard Triptych featuring one of the Italian High-Renaissance Cinquecento artist’s most notorious work the Creation of Adam Panel, found on the Sistine Chapel Ceiling Fresco (1511-1512). One of the two central panels of the Sistine Chapel ceiling fresco, The Creation of Adam , represents the moment when God and Adam confront each other in a primordial unformed landscape of which Adam is still a material part, heavy as earth. The Lord transcends the earth, wrapped in a billowing cloud of drapery and borne up by His powers. Representing the Old Testament biblical passage in Genesis 1:26 (NIV, Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”), Michelangelo depicts the moment where life leaps to Adam like a spark from the extended and mighty hand of God. As God reaches out to Adam, the viewer’s eye travels from right to left, but Adam’s extended left arm leads the eye back to the right, along with the Lord’s arm, shoulders and left arm to his left forefinger, which points to the Christ Child’s face. Through this compositional arrangement, Michelangelo vividly exemplifies the Christian doctrinal parallel between Adam, the first man, and cause of the fall of humanity, and the subsequent redemption from sin through the sacrifice of Christ referred in Scripture as “The New Adam.” Bringing together tradition and contemporary culture, Musart Boutique is proud to present our exclusive original collection Musart on Decks featuring limited edition skateboard decks, displaying art historical timeless masterpieces which bridge the traditional history of art and contemporary skateboarding culture at accessible prices.

Michelangelo
As one of the most prominent artists of all time, Michelangelo shows us the tragic depth of the human experience. As a matter of fact, the artist's all-encompassing universality remains applicable hundreds of years later. Therefore, he has influenced countless artists and movements. His masterworks have certainly gained immortality that ensures his legacy will live on. Michelangelo had significant success throughout his career, making various masterworks from almost every period of life. Michelangelo created the Pieta in 1497 which is a work of sculpted marble depicting the body of Jesus on the lap of his mother Mary after the crucifixion. His work was a brilliant blend of physical realism, psychological insight, and intensity that had never really been grasped at the time. Indeed, it always remains difficult to approach to this day. His works are the absolute definition of masterpieces. The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and the statue of David, are works that will stand the test of time.
