Google Earth's Prado
Google Earth has teamed up with Spain's Prado Museum to give Internet users an alien's-eye view of the planet capable of zooming inside the museum and examining the fine detail of 14 of its paintings. On the left is a closeup from Roger van der Weyden's Descent of Christ from the Cross (title link). Woopidoo over at Art News Blog (CLICK) has been twiddling the zoom knob for days and has discovered the fun had by anal flautists in Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch (right). I wonder what aliens using Google Earth will make of this religious painting! "Oi, Schnurggrrr, you seen how them dozy humans play their nostril-flutes?"
