...with a resounding thud. Totally off topic, but not really since Steven has recently brought painters in his comments a few posts back.
When I was 13 my mother took me to Paris to visit her boyfriend who had been transferred by Kodak from Rochester to Lyon, France. I was very interested in art and painting at the time and asked to go to the Musée National Picasso Paris to view the largest collection of this artists work. It was there I first saw the 11ft. tall, 23ft. wide mural "Guernica". I fell in love with it and to this day it remains one of my all-time favorite paintings by any artist.
So how floored was I when I stumbled upon this absolutely stunning 3d rendering and journey into and around the painting! I noticed items and small details that I missed when I was 13 and since I haven't seen it this large since, it was a remarkable experience.

It was created by art student Lena Gieseke from the University of Georgia (the state in the U.S. not the country). You can find more info on the project on her site. http://www.lena-gieseke.com/guernica
Fan of Picasso, this painting or not... it's a must see!
