SOMETIMES I lay awake in bed at night thinking about Michelangelo and wondering how many pecks at the chisel it took before the Roman Catholic Church designated him a Master Builder. I mean, you figure the young apprentice took a crisp bite to the nose, perhaps shaved a little too much off the right nip, and at other times circumcised the penis in whole, before finally getting it right. Marble slabs of stone such as David don’t form abs like that overnight. Or do they? Given the official narrative, you would expect imperfection. But we are never shown that version of Michelangelo at work. It is only ever ‘The Divine One’ who is exhibited.
