"In Monreale there are beautiful mosaics of creation; not even Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel understood more deeply the creation of the waters, the land and the celestial bodies, and above all he forgot, he could not represent, that God on the seventh day saw that he was very good and rested. God in Monreale rests, dreams, like a farmer after work, with his hands in his lap."
