Images meme

So I was tagged by Jack to particpate in this meme. It's supposed to be "Eight Things I Find Amazing in Picture Form." I, uh, found more than eight. And I suck at decision making, and I've always been "too much is never enough," so... I guess I'll put a few of 'em here and you can pick yer favorites.

To start off, I've always been a big Bosch fan, particularly the "Garden of Earthly Delights" triptych.

The whole shebang in miniature really can't do it justice, though. Here are a few closeups:

center panel:

and various close-up details, I think all from "Earth" and "Hell" (Heaven's always the least interesting...)

...and, well, that's eight already, isn't it? Hardly seems fair, though. Well, one more here for good measure, a Breughel I find extraordinary. (I always tend to confuse Bosch and Breughel, not to say the two Breughels, Elder and Younger, with each other). The Tower of Babel:

...and, hm. So I'll go ahead and put some of the others in a separate post, then, shall I? Yes, I shall.

Christ Carrying the Cross is my fav. Bosch. The people all look so tense and grungy, and Christ looks very resigned. He's like, Norman Rockwell without the whimsy.
