Great idea Ryan. We neglected architecture and this is a great start.

I have a real treat for you, in fact for anyone who enjoys Michelangelo's work in the Sistine Chapel:

I couldn't load both pics for some reason . Anyway the idea was to load both pics so that they could be side by side and you could see the comparison. Unfortunately my attempt failed . Fortunately though this is on the computer and it will be easy for you to manipulate in a way that you can see this. Saw it done on a couple websites a while ago . Whats interesting is the the man on the bottom of "God" appears to have a face of some type of crazed man ( I imagine he represents the lower mind by his positioning and the crazy type face) , but when i zoomed in its actually a pic of the back of the guys head, though the curls of his hair appear to make it look like something else. There were a couple things i liked about this , I have heard people talk about God creating the world and man with thought . Here it kind of makes that assumption that man comes from Gods mind , or I guess you could see that God is inside man and this is his location type of thing. Or it says Michealangelos sub conscious was actively at play and he didnt mean to make this association.
