It's a Woodcut like Godzilla is a Lizard.
The Triumphal Arch of Maximillian I, 1515 at the wonderful Philadelphia Museum of Art. It's huge. It's by Durer and pals. It's incredible. It's got snakes, goats, battles and mysterious empty seascapes. I'm going to have to go sit and stare at it for a few hundred hours before it goes away. You should too. Try to contain your drool. It won't be easy.
