These fascinating photographs show a majestic orangutan that mimics one of the most famous scenes in world art.

The photos were taken by photographer Julia Wimmerlin [42] and show the orangutan with outstretched arms to a passerby, a mirror image of the famous scene in the Sistine Chapel of God in the Vatican created by Adam.

Another image shows it staring in contemplation at a pool of water, his hand moving away from the hand of a passing boat captain in Tanjung Puting National Park, Indonesia.

Julia said: & # 39; For me, these photos are so human in their true love and care, multitasking and resourcefulness. They are not only beautiful, they are very true in the emotions that they convey.

& # 39; The moment I saw the orangutan extend its hand to reach the hand of a skipper, it gave me shivers because it looked like a mix of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel and an alien hand.

& # 39; Attracted by the remnants of our breakfast, she decided to reach the boat.

& # 39; We were able to observe the entire process because she was not sure that she was trying to get into the water to reach the boat. Right now we started throwing some of this food into water.

& # 39; At the end when she considered boarding the boat, the skipper put his hand with food in the opposite direction.
