  Artwork: Ancestors of Christ: Josiah - Jeconiah - Shealtiel
  Artist: MICHELANGELO Buonarroti
  Date: 1511-12
  Technique: Fresco
  Location: Cappella Sistina, Vatican
  Notes: Lunette. Josiah is usually considered to be the man on the right, and Jechoniah (Jehoiachin) the child that he holds on his knees. On the opposite side the child's mother is believed to be holding in her arms another of the sons begotten by Josiah during the Babylonian captivity. The identification of the characters in Michelangelo's frescos of the ancestors of Christ is generally uncertain.
