Icons on Gilded Bible 100 detail.jpg

Kremlin Armory, Moscow, Russia

The amount of detail on this small portion of the Bible cover is simply amazing. This is a 100% crop of the previous image, "zooming" in on the figures in the center of the cover. This is where the pixel density of the D2x sensor really shines. Even in highly detailed areas, a 100% crop offers remarkable detail and color.

This bible cover is a masterpiece of metal work, enamel, and color. Even eyes and toenails on the figures have been painted by the artisan who created this miniature masterpiece. I assume this depicts Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.
