Amazing: Interactive Virtual Tour of Sistine Chapel

http://www.vatican.va/various/cappelle/sistina_vr/index.html

Accompanying note received via email:
Almost better than being there because you can see all the paintings up close without straining your neck (or waiting in line).

TO VIEW EVERY PART OF THE MICHAEL D'ANGELO'S MASTERPIECE, JUST CLICK on the link above, then DRAG the ARROW [cursor] IN THE DIRECTION YOU WANT TO SEE. In the lower left, click on the plus (+) to move move closer or the minus (-) to move away. Hold the left button on your ouse down to rotate the picture. This virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel is incredible. Apparently done by Villanova at the request of the Vatican. Viva technology [when it works for good]!
