Michelangelo was a Renaissance artist showing many works. As the
secrets of Michelangelo's art have been revealed recently, various studies
have been carried out, revealing the secret code of human anatomy in his
work. This was an important clue that Michelangelo dissected a huge
number of human beings and was a anatomist with considerable expertise.
Brazilian doctors Jalousie Bahaetto and Marcelo G Gli Oliveira, from the
Vatican Sistina ceiling murals to the sculpture Pieta, examined the works of
the Renaissance genius artist Michelangelo in detail and found anatomical
elements in many works. Although some interpretations are controversial,
it would be a good experience for medical doctor to appreciate
masterpieces of Michelangelo in comparison to their human anatomy.
