Point to Ponder

How much in government grants did Michelangelo receive to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel?

Well, since the Papal States was a sovereign nation at the time, and since Michelangelo's commission came straight from the Papal treasury, I suppose that one might infer that Mikey was 100% funded from a government grant.
