Impressive for so many reasons! First, Cem, the massivity of the artwork and then the skill of the artist.

But the humor in showing the tired, as you point out, totally bored guard/museum attendant adds so much more dimension in time and space!

Notice though how the artist's "lens" fails to illuminate the edges well!

Thanks Asher. I hope I don't have to remind the lookers that this is one of the most famous paintings in the world, the Night Watch by Rembrandt?

Spontaneous point of view of a fantastic work Cem... :)

Seconded.

The actually boring piece of art must be on the other side - facing the museum attendant.
What is it?

Best regards,

Its the sort of painting I'd probably walk straight past not being an art fan.

Since it is a huge painting with a million people trying to have a glimpse of it all the time, you'd never be able to walk straight past it! ;)
