From ancient times a sibyl was a prophetess who prophesied at certain holy sites, under the divine influence of a deity.

I like very much this painting too as well as Your gorgeous and harmonic style and gamuts!
By the way, here's how Michelangelo saw the Lybian Sybil on the Sixtin Chapel, a terrificly huge and colorful XV century ceilings fresco, long before M. Sarkozy decided to get interested flying to her ...:D:D:D
All the other ancient times famous ones were painted by Michelangelo, among much many more main and secondary figures, on that Universal Judgment majestic representation which is also a sort of virtual, visual encyclopedia of that age.
