The Prophet Daniel (1508-1512)
Michelangelo Buonarroti 1475 – 1564
fresco — 1508-1512
Museum Sistine Chapel, Vatican City
Daniel 1:1 - In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it.
Daniel is known as a prophet partly because of his power to explain dreams. But first and foremost Daniel is the hero of his own book.

This is one of the frescoes showing prophets in the Sistine Chapel. It is part of Michelangelo's ceiling decoration.
