What’s up with that strange looking wart on Adam’s upper thigh on the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling? Is that weird little flap supposed to be Adam’s penis? Okay, it’s flaccid, obviously. But isn’t it a little misshapen?
I mean, fine, the penis supposed to be laying on its side. But Adam’s heavily muscled right leg is straight out and his left leg is bent at the knee. Adam’s resting on his naked ass, so by that perspective, the penis should be tucked between the two legs, and hidden away like in a PG-13 movie. But no, his wang is peeking out, up and over the right leg. Wouldn’t it slide off? What’s holding it there? Scotch tape?
I admit, my experience with the resting pose of a male penis is somewhat scant, but that picture always seemed wrong to me. It’s like Michelangelo was saying, “Well if you can’t see his dong, he’s not really naked.”
What do you guys think?
