    Here's a link to the painting (with identifiers).
    http://cliptank.com/PeopleofInfluencePainting.htm
    The webpage has mouse-over tags and hyperlinks.

    The title of the painting is ‘Discussing the Divine Comedy with Dante’.

    The painting (oil on canvas) was jointly created in 2006 by three Chinese artists: Dai Dudu, Li Tiezi, and Zhang An.

    Here's more information on the artists and their work:
    http://chinadigitaltimes.net/china/oil-painting/

    Incidentally, the artists are part of the painting.
    They are the three next to Dante on the terrace :)

    Hmm..

    ..i think that's depicted from a painting entitled "Kashmir"..
    ..you guys should click on the camel. Check out the possible 'look-alikes' of the camel..:eek::
    http://cliptank.com/famous-camel-look-alike.htm
    ..they should make a new painting showing the famous 200 people in world history. I know they didn't show other famous/historical people (Wright brothers, Thomas Edison, Marco Polo, John Lennon, Moses and so forth). Yet, more than 10% of the people are from Chinese heritage...

    Actually, it's from a photograph, not a painting :)

    It's from this picture by Henri Cartier-Bresson, the pioneering photojournalist.

    is a daily photo update, here is the copy from National Geography photo of the day.
    This Month in Photo of the Day: Animals
    My husband and I were exploring Lake Minnewanka in Banff National Park-Canada when we stopped for a timed picture of the two of us. We had our camera set up on some rocks and were getting ready to take the picture when this curious little ground squirrel appeared, became intriqued with the sound of the focusing camera and popped right into our shot! A once in a lifetime moment! We were laughing about this little guy for days!!
