Three Temptations of Christ (detail)1481-82
Cappella Sistina, Vatican
The fresco represents Christ's threefold temptation by the Devil. On the right-hand side, he is showing the Son of God the splendour of the world's riches, over which he is offering to make Him master. However, Christ drives away the Devil, who ultimately reveals his true devilish form.
