This is the kind of image that makes me think of TJMaxx. A tired image. Overused and homogenized. And ironically, these words describe Adam in this premortal gloria: he is pretty, but immovable. Weak and waiting. Lacking a spark. All he can do is lift a finger. But seen as a piece of art (or a piece of a piece of art), apart from the vases and logos and t-shirts that have been made from it, The Creation of Adam is a stroke of genius. A stroke like the touch that is about to enliven Adam. God, flowing and determined, is about to touch him: le moment heureux. We are holding our breath. And, if you double-click (a word Michelangelo would have loved), you'll see Eve, the most eager spectator, daring Adam to respond to the challenge. I want more of these electric moments! Preferably, moments where God, a man and a woman are involved!
