I’m not even kidding, Michel Sittow’s The Assumption of the Virgin is about the same size as this .jpg.

And yet, it’s so incredibly detailed! The small, glistening stones in Mary’s crown; the small, glistening angels carrying a moon bow for Mary’s ascension; the small, glistening windows in the city below. I suppose at 5×7″, it has to be both “small” by definition, but “glistening?!” Glistening is ALL extra. <3<3<3

Hello!? A MOON BOW. That’s the coolest thing I’ve ever seen any figure stand on to get into Heaven.
