Would You Adam And Eve It?
- Islington pub gets Sistine Chapel makeover

A NORTH London Pub has been touched by the hand of god after having its ceiling decorated Michelangelo style - albeit with a modern twist.

The mural, located in the appropriately named Chapel pub in Islington, transforms the famous Creation Of Adam scene - where Adam reaches for the hand of the Almighty - into the more customary experience of a landlord handing over a pint of Guinness.

Bob Venables, the mastermind behind the work - as well as Guinness's latest ad campaign - spent three weeks completing the 19ft by 12ft painting that also features a pool cue and darts. One of Venables's colleagues said: "We were worried a message on the ceiling might go over customer's heads. But it does and it doesn't."
