Only two Sistine Chapel Ceilings exist in the world.
One was painted in 1508 by Michelangelo Buonarroti and is located in Vatican City, Rome, Italy.
The second was painted in 1988 by Gary Bevans in Goring-by-Sea, West Sussex, England.


Welcome to the website for the Sistine Chapel Ceiling Reproduction, United Kingdom.  After a pilgrimage to Rome in 1987, artist Gary Bevans decided upon an interesting project that had been inspired with his visit to the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.  Noting that the Sistine Chapel Ceiling was practically the exact same shape and size as the ceiling of his parish church at home, he was inspired to recreate an exact copy.  This he undertook with permission from his parish priest and his local Bishop.  The ceiling remains a work of art that inspires and interests people throughout the world today.  This site provides information on the artwork, details of the church in which it can be visited and some background information.
