The Creation of Adam, by Michelangelo, 1521, is my inspiration for my final project. I find the pose inspiring because it shows the intersection between humanity and the divine. This is the topic I wanted to delve into for my own piece . I believe the gap between the fingers represents the instant after Adam’s creation and I think that them not being shown touching was deliberate due to the artist’s inability to comprehend the miracle of life.
