I took great umbrage at Tam's suggestion that we "have guns o the brain." Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. Unlike some people I know, we happen to be a blog of varied and eclectic interests. Case in point: the following painting entitled Aristotle Contemplating the Bust of Homer, has been described as portraying the greatest philosopher thinking about the greatest story-teller while wearing the medallion of the greatest conqueror, rendered by the greatest painter.
More in keeping with some of the regular themes of our blog is The Polish Rider. It's absolutely hypnotic. Go to New York City and see for yourself.
