"Are you awake? You were speaking of the meaning…of our…life…of the unselfishness of art…Take music for instance. Less than anything else, it is connected to reality, or if connected at all, it’s done mechanically, not by way of ideas, just by a shear sound, devoid of…any associations. And yet, music, as if by some miracle, gets through to our heart."
- Stalker (1979), dir. Andrei Tarkovsky

She Shall Be Called Woman - George Frederic Watts
The lesser reviled but still bizarre European cover of Mega Man on the NES. Closer to the actual character, but still a lot of liberties taken. Massive size for this art too!

"In 1885, Repin completed one of his most psychologically intense paintings, Ivan the Terrible and his Son. This canvas displayed a horrified Ivan embracing his dying son, whom he had just struck and mortally wounded in an uncontrolled fit of rage. The terrified face of Ivan is in marked contrast with that of his calm, almost Christlike son.”
