As George Clooney descends on Cincinnati, Ohio, this month to film a new movie, local fans have gone above and beyond to capture his, uh, beauty.
According to NBC affiliate WLWT, local artists at Studio Vertu have created a 4-foot-by-10-foot mural depicting Clooney as Adam in Michelangelo’s famous Sistine Chapel painting. Yep, Clooney’s head has been placed onto Adam’s body, sans clothes and reaching out to the hand of God.
And the mural, aptly titled ‘God’s Gift to Women,’ is not just hanging in a local art gallery. The image, which was printed on Italian marble tiles, is prominently displayed on a wall outside Grant Street Studio.
“This is our homage to George Clooney,” said Mark Schmidt with Studio Vertu. “We decided to have a little fun with it, roll out the red carpet in our own way.”
Though not much is left up to the imagination in the painting, the image of Clooney’s body is specifically cropped right at the waist.
“Well, I didn’t want to compliment him, or insult him,” Schmidt said.
Clooney is currently in town filming ‘The Ides of March.’ According to IMDB, the actor, who co-stars with Ryan Gosling and Marisa Tomei, also co-wrote the screenplay and is directing the film, which centers around dirty politics during a presidential campaign.
