Detail: The Deposition by Rogier van der Weyden

God bless Google Earth and the staff of Madrid's Museo del Prado, for the tremendous undertaking of photographing some of that museum's most iconic art pieces in ultra high resolution. Rogier van der Weyden's Deposition has always fascinated me, and seeing it at such a close angle really impresses upon the viewer a sense of the master's superb artistry. Wikipedia Commons has made these photos available for public consumption; but be warned, some of them are nearly 100 MB in size.
