      That is very cool Penny. It certainly looks Rembrandt-y to me.

        It certainly is an interesting Portrait. Makes me wonder how Abstract styles, like the distinctive mannerisms of a Mondrian, or a Jackson Pollack, could turn out like, via such a conceptualisation process.

          NASA Sends Image of the Mona Lisa to the Moon and Back

          The same super-fast laser technology that sent clear images of Mars back to Earth just cleared another hurdle closer to home by sending an image of the Mona Lisa to the surface of the moon and back again.

          Scientists at NASA wanted to know whether they could use laser pulses to “communicate” with the lunar surface using the same tool that tracks the position of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

                Engineer finds a huge physics discovery in da Vinci's 'irrelevant scribbles'

                Until now, art historians dismissed some doodles in da Vinci’s notebooks as “irrelevant.”
                But a new study from Ian Hutchings, a professor at the University of Cambridge, showed that one page of these scribbles from 1493 actually contained something groundbreaking: The first written records demonstrating the laws of friction.

                    Amazing, it does, commanding, can see what you mean. I like the first place travel one, a view above the clouds.

                        A hidden portrait by the French Impressionist painter Edgar Degas has been revealed by scientists.

                        Researchers in Australia used powerful X-rays to bring to light the painting of a young woman concealed beneath a work called Portrait of a Woman.

                                "But my research shows the opposite, that you actually want to get women in an active state.

                                "So, you can run around the block with your partner and get them to chase you around the block, or watch a scary movie together, ride a rollercoaster together, even a good comedy act. If you really get laughing, you're going to have a sympathetic activation response."
