Thanks to digital technology and the LA-based SEE Global Entertainment (SEE™), a family of companies that specialize in global touring exhibitions, this new stunning spectacle showcases the wonder of one of mankind’s greatest artistic feats.

The ceiling paintings from the Sistine Chapel have been recreated by using licensed high-definition photos, using special expertise and care.

This globally successful exhibition is an innovative and unique interpretation of Michelangelo’s timeless masterpiece which was painted in the artist’s signature fresco style on the freshly plastered walls and ceilings of the Apostolic Palace in Rome, Italy between 1508 and 1512.
Michelangelo completed his work between 1535 and 1541, and visitors can marvel at it today with this innovative and cutting-edge interpretation of one of the world’s most famous interior paintings.
