Peeps on the Ceiling

I imagine tomorrow's Pioneer Press will include the winners of the paper's annual Peeps diorama contest. But before those are announced, I wanted to share a couple of photos of one that I saw while wandering around the studio art building at Macalester College.

The title: Michelangelpeep's Peepstine Chapel Ceiling.

Here's a close-up of the ceiling and the artist, lying on his back atop the scaffolding with his paint pots:

God, Adam, and everyone else gets the Peep treatment.

The accompanying card reads:

As the peeple of Rome peep in, Michelangelpeep puts the finishing touches on the Peepstine Chapel ceiling. His Holiness Peep Julius II looks on, accompanied by the College of Cardinals and guarded by the Swiss Peeps.
