Sistine Puzzle unlocks the secrets of Michelangelo’s art


Is there a secret message embedded on the Sistine Chapel Ceiling? Was exhausted artist Michelangelo Buonarroti so overcome by the time his masterpiece was complete that he added one final, hidden touch? What unknown element may have been peering down on visitors to that famous chapel in the pope’s Apostolic Palace for the past five centuries?

In the process of completing an 8,000-piece jigsaw puzzle depicting the famous Italian fresco, author Dave Clark came to believe there might be a Michelangelo Sistine Chapel mystery at hand. After extensive research on both the artist and his sistine chapel ceiling itself, as well as travel to Florence and Rome, Clark seeks to slowly reveal the secret the Renaissance master may have tucked away in his work.

A new chapter is slated to be revealed each Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with the ceiling’s final hidden message apparent by the first of November 2012. This date corresponds with the 500th anniversary of the ceiling’s dedication.

With 90 pieces in this puzzle of a story, Clark gives the reader a regular dose of intrigue while holding the punch to the very end. By combining classic art, storytelling, and suspense, he brings a fresh perspective to one of the world’s most iconic works.
