Graffiti artist recreates Sistine Chapel ceiling


A graffiti artist is recreating the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in a rundown building in Iowa.

Paco Rosic and his family have spent their life savings, and his parents have taken out a second mortgage, to pay for the project.

The family are converting the building into a cafe and jazz club and hope the fresco will pay for itself by helping to attract customers.

I can only wish them the 'best of luck'.
