Move over Da Vinci. Here comes [Mona Lisa 2013]
It is not a photograph, not even a painting, but a ball-point-pens-on-paper drawing, by Samuel Silva.
This is extreme talent for any culture, for any species even (including galactic-level ETs if they – likely – exist).
It is masterpieces like this and the ones below, as well as those in music, in literature, in philosophy, as well as in science, that uphold the species Homo sapiens in high esteem (in my eyes).
And no, in spite of our foibles, hypocrisies and atrocities, I still do NOT wish extinction on our species.
For the sake of all life on Earth, then, this leaves us with no option but to EVOLVE – biologically and sociologically – into a truthful, wise and benevolent species.
*None of the following is a photograph, but paintings or drawings.
