Sistine Chapel Ceiling - in Miniature

Sign-writer Gary Bevans spent five-and-a-half painstaking years painting the ceiling at the church in West Sussex. Mr Bevans, 60, began his masterpiece after being inspired on a pilgrimage to the Vatican. He started the project in 1987 despite never having an art lesson. The end product, although 30ft nearer the ground and only 3,500 sq ft to the original’s 5,000 sq ft, remains the only full copy in the world.
