Eritrean Sibyl (fresco) by Michelangelo Buonarroti

Eritrean Sibyl, fresco by Michelangelo Buonarroti, fragment of the Sistine Chapel painting. Sibyl of Eritrean, which was known for the book of Moses, predicted the fall of Troy and other events of ancient history. She embodies a blooming force and poise.

On the fresco by Michelangelo, the Eritrean Sibyl flipped through an ancient book and turned so that everyone could admire her eyes, beauty and the power of her addition. The historian and biographer of painters Giorgio Vasari describes it this way: “… she keeps her book far from herself and, with her legs crossed, is going to turn over the page, pondering over what to write next, while the way behind her blows fire “To light her lamp. This figure of beauty is extraordinary both in the expression of her face, in her hair, and in her clothes; her arms are the same.”
