A story from my experience (By John Saunders).
Some years ago, here in Japan, I had opportunity to visit the Otsuka Museum of Art. I entered the first main exhibit, which is a full-size replica of the Sistine Chapel with Da Vinci’s art. I haven’t been to the original Sistine Chapel to see the inside of the chapel and its beauty. When I walked into this replica, I just stood in awe at the immense size and beauty of what was all around me.
I hope you have an opportunity to visit either the original chapel or the replica at the Otsuka Museum, at least one of them.
