And all His Saints

Curator Fabrizio Mancinelli was first to notice Dominic, patron Saint of Basket weavers, gravediggers, and busboys in The Last Judgement. Notice la spazzola, a common sixteenth century table clearing/ ashtray cleaning tool. Michelangelo was a 5th level Brown Tub Busboy. Experts agree the Sistine Chapel is riddled with busboy symbolism.
