Art lovers can now take in the Sistine Chapel’s sprawling painted ceiling with ease, thanks to a new installation of 7,000 LED lights. Viewers have been admiring Michelangelo’s 16th century fresco in dimly lit conditions since the 1980s, when the Vatican blocked off the windows due to light damage to the paintings. Next month, according to the Wall Street Journal, the chapel ceiling will be fully illuminated with LEDs, allowing visitors to see every detail and nuance painted by Michelangelo’s hand—without damage to the artwork.
