    Very cool painting. Very interesting.

    What's the title of it? Was there a significance of the people that he or she chose to put in the painting?

    Bill Gates was the first one that I saw. Is he not the first one on the top left? Some of the Caucasian faces look familiar, but slighty different. I was wondering if it were painted by an Asian artist. I don't mean that in a ignorant tone, just an observation.

    And who is the guy on the far right in the middle who in on his knees begging for mercy? I can't make him out or the guying he is pleading with.

    I like this painting very much!

    Alright, you listed 10. I'll list ten that I see.

    Mark Twain
    Shirley Temple
    Audrey Hepburn
    Picasso
    Paul Gaugain (sp?)
    Beethoven
    Prince Charles
    Marilyn Monroe
    T'Louse Latrec (sp?)
    And that really tall, Japanese basketball player. I can't remember his name!!!! :tonofbricks:

    Hmm.....I can't tell if he's Italian, Spanish, Brazilian/South American or Russian. :laugh:

    The only thing I can come up with is Benito Mussolini (sp?!?) if he's Italian. Or Juan Peron if he's Argentinian. Otherwise I don't know.

    I wish there was a list somewhere of all of these people, because there are some that I will NEVER get. :BangHead:

    Is that our president right below Bin Laden?

    Then below him there’s Pavarotti
    Salvador Dali
    And is that Michael Jordon? (yes, right next to that orange melon).

    Lots of past entertainers; Elvis, Marlon Brando, Beethoven, Shirley Temple, Marilyn Monroe, Shakespeare

    Do you see any symbolism? How about the fact that GW has the telescope trained on Hussein on the other side of the painting and Bin laden is right behind him. I dont know, just an observation.

    Yep, it's Mussolini. He's holding his nose because Hitler had immense problems with flatulence, a condition perhaps exacerbated by his vegetarian diet.

    Most of y'all have already named more than I think I could get (maybe one out of ten, if I had a long time) but that is a remarkable work, IMO.
