    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 ...
    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.

    Thank you Caesar. Sounds like your paintings are well grounded in art history.
