See recreations of some of the Renaissance artist’s most famous works, up close and to scale with the iconic originals in Italy.

If seeing the iconic religious paintings by Renaissance master Michelangelo on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is on your art bucket list – but you obviously can’t cross it off at the moment – this is the next best thing.

Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition recreates some the Italian artist’s most recognised work, at the same scale as the originals – but here you can see them up close. The 34 frescoes include The Creation of Adam and the large-scale Last Judgment from the chapel’s altar wall.

The recreations are made with a unique printing technique that imitates the aged look and texture of the original paintings, down to the tiniest of brush strokes.

Prior to Australia, the exhibition was also presented in the US, Canada, Austria and the UK.
