The Creation of Adam

In most reproductions of "The Creation of Adam" in the Sistine Chapel, this is the picture you get - God giving man the spark of life that is different from the plants and animals. God endues him with an eternal soul. He loves Adam.

But this picture is truncated. This is the whole picture:

Nestled under the arm of the loving, gift-giving, all-knowing, artist Father-God, is Eve.
