Here Michelangelo depicted the scene of the conversion of St. Paul. The New Testament tells how the Jew Saul, the persecutor of Christians, went in search of them, to bring them to Jerusalem and there to be punished.
For three days, Saul was blind and was healed by the word of God by his disciple, after which he was baptized and soon became the apostle Paul. Michelangelo depicted the moment when the Lord sheds a seed on His future follower, and he, blinded, falls from his horse to the ground.
The earth, as if seen by the artist from above, looks uplifted, besides its surface leans slightly to the left,
The combination of dynamics and static character introduces a special tension in the image. Some figures, such as those located below, are cut off by the edge of the fresco, and it seems that what is happening continues beyond its borders. In addition, Michelangelo enters into the composition a landscape as if seen from the sky, which gives the scene a cosmic scale.
