Welcome to a site that I just cannot wait to share with you! I think I’ve sent this link to everyone I know! This is an incredible painting of famous people throughout the world’s history.
Discussing the Divine Comedy with Dante is a painting done in oil on canvas, it was created by Dai Dudu, Li Tiezi, and Zhang An, and you’ll even find them in the painting in the right corner near Dante.
As you look around the painting, you’ll be amazed at the sheer number of people in the image. Better yet, you can click on each figure and be taken to their Wikipedia page.
For example, if you click Shirley Temple in the foreground of the painting, you’ll be whisked away to her page on Wikipedia. The nice thing is that it opens in a new tab (if you’re using tabbed browsing) or a new window – so you don’t lose the painting.
What I really love about this is that if you click through several different figures in history you get the equivalent of a tasting of history. This painting and the concept of including the wiki links makes this site and interesting slice of interactive media.
I hope that you’ll enjoy it as much as I did, it is just so neat! Check it out today!
