This Halo Lies!

Yesterday as I was leaving work I noticed this thing:

varnum-halo

Normally halos signify holy things, but the building in the center of the photo is full of lawyers.

I am approaching the end of Evan Connell’s wonderful book on Goya (link in the books section). My only complaint is that, other than the cover, there is none of Goya’s work in the book. Not so surprising; the book is about Goya in history, rather than Goya the artist. So I went to the best collection of art on the internet and found all the Goya one could reasonably hope for, assembled in chronological order.
