durer 1521

Albrecht Durer

Although this engraving is not my particular taste, I can, however, appreciate how well done it is. The amount of detail that goes in to a piece like this is mind-blowing. Every little detail that is shown is made engraved using hatch marks. Even the water around St. Christopher's legs has amazing detail that shows movement. I also enjoy how he showcased his signature on the rock submerged in the water. One thing I dislike about this piece is the creepy baby head.
