The Cumaean sibyl on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel looked odd for a figure that was supposed to represent the prophetess of a golden era heralded by Julius II’s deeds. Michelangelo depicted her as a grotesque colossus, with one of the most terrifying bodies of the whole ceiling, including long arms, huge biceps and forearms, Atlas-like shoulders of such proportions that her head was dwarfed by them.

This rather contemptuous portrait also suggests she is farsighted because she has to hold her book at arms-length to read in it. However this may be,  Michelangelo attitude toward this ugly old hag and her prophecies is expressed in the gesture made by one of the two naked children standing beside her

Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was an Italian sculptor, painter, architect and poet of the High Renaissance born in the Republic of Florence, who exerted an unparalleled influence on the development of Western art.   Considered the greatest living artist during his lifetime, he has since been described as one of the greatest artists of all time. A number of his works in painting, sculpture, and architecture rank among the most famous in existence. Often called Il Divino ("the divine one"), his contemporaries often admired his terribilità—his ability to install a sense of awe. Attempts by subsequent artists to imitate Michelangelo's impassioned, highly personal style resulted in Mannerism, the next major movement in Western art after the High Renaissance.
