Two doctors in Brazil think they have found hidden codes in Michelangelos' frescos that depict a series of human organs.
The key to finding the numerous organs, bones and other human insides is to first crack a "code" they believe was left behind by the Florentine
artist. Essentially, it is a set of sometimes subtle, sometimes overt clues, like the way a figure is pointing.

It sounds kind of interesting until I saw the photo of the heart representation. If that is a heart, I think Michelangelo must be shaping clouds too
cuz I'm sure I've seen that in the sky more than once.
Just kidding, it read on and it is really pretty cool how he was not just doing art for arts sake, he was actually trying to go beyond art and give a
lesson on anatomy. Wonder how many other things are out there that we just havn't figured out yet.
Anyway, just wanted to post and see if there are any other artists in history who have done similar things.
