@alpensepp
Your argument sounds like something people made up afterwards, because the horns are actually based on a translation error. The Hebrew word for "radiant in glory" was mistaken for "horned" by biblical translator St. Jerome. Even Michelangelo made a statue with a Moses with horns.
So much for the literal word of God, eh?

Johanvb sorry to steal your thunder: the droste effect is a repetition of the picture in the picture. This is not a reappearance of the same picture (the droste effect)

I don't like the pollock, there's no yellow in the bottom right to balance it out. Even one little dot would help.

"Art within art within... ARTCEPTION!"

Sorry to steal your thunder but there's already a name for that, it's called Mise en abyme or the Droste effect.

pretty :)

I agree for the most part, OldOllie.
In my art appreciation studies (random high school/college classes), teachers always kissed Jackson Pollock's arse and was like LOOK SO AMAZING. But I always thought it was just paint splatters. I must not be "in tune" with fine art. Eh.

@rizzo
Moses is always portayed with "horns", but its meant to be rays of light out of his head, symbolizing widsom/godly enlightenment.
