    This is what the Mona Lisa might look like if it were fully restored.

    I'm sorry. I would've given reference to the artist, but people aren't sure who the artist is. Experts think that it was painted in the da Vinci studio around the same time as the original Mona Lisa.

    Some protest art:

    Google images has changed so that even if you visit the original page, the artist is rarely credited. Although I searched for the artist's names, nothing came up. It's kind of fitting actually because with protest art, hardly anyone can name the artist, but can instantly recognise the work itself.

    M. C. Escher - Relativity

    [Image: bad-image.png]

    Maurits Cornelis Escher is by far one of my favourite artists...
    Since I studied physics at the University I was deeply moved by his astounding representations of the deep issues in science...

    Relativity is one of his most famous works... and I still remember when during the day I prepared my General Relativity exam and I was building a puzzle during the evening of the picture above... I matured a microscopic perception of the whole work...

    General Relativity states that, contrarily to the galileian approach, it's impossible to postulate description of the universe through global Inertial frames of reference , cause gravity reshapes in a far more complicated manner the space-time and that intertial descriptions can apply only locally (i.e.: on scales where the curvature triggered by gravity is negligible).

    The picture above is the visual representation of this concept... and it gives me the goosebumps Smile

    Escher triggers my holistic approach to perception, where visual art, science and music are locked in, what Douglas Hofstadter calls, "An Eternal Golden Braid"

    If it happens to you to have a holiday period I strongly advise you to read Hofstadter's book:

    Gödel, Escher, Bach

    it's tough, but it's an adventure for the spirit you shouldnt miss Big Grin
