Art Project

Hans_Holbein_The Ambassadors_Pisces_close_up.JPG

The Google Art Project allows you to take a streetview stroll into a number of famous art museums and then an extreme close up of a representative sampling of their contents. The extreme close up above is taken from a relatively dark spot in Hans Holbein's The Ambassadors.
