Hi Res Picture

They always say that you can't go wrong with a Ferrari.
As regular readers know, I really enjoy classical religious art and also the internet. So, as you can imagine, this link is just too cool not to share.

8.6 Gigapixel picture "Vita di Christo" by Gaudenzio Ferrari

Yes, that's GIGA pixels (8600 x Megapixels)
[Sorry for those of you on dial-up, you might not be able to appreciate it.]

You can zoom in on the picture to look it with detail of up to a few centimeters in the frame.

Just to show the detail, if you look at the first picture above, you can see a circle near the top of the picture. The detail here is of the eye of the man inside that circle.

Nice background music too. Beautiful painting and probably one of the biggest pictures on the web. Wish there was some way to download it. ;)

You can spend a lot of time on this link. Amazing picture.
