This is an unknown artist's interpretation of a very famous painting, the Creation of Adam by Michelangelo.  It was on a wall mural of a local Italian restaurant. 

The original Creation of Adam is a fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, c. 1508-1512.  It is one of many.  I don't know if I will ever get to see the real thing but it has always been on the bucket list.  I read that it is one of the most replicated religious paintings of all time.

You can find more history of the original here.  There is another interesting website here.
