Russia - Hermitage

OK, fair warning.  What we have here is a bunch of really crappy photos of some great works of art.  I came within an inch of just leaving these photos out, but that seems like cheating.  Just be aware that the art has a lot more effect in person, and I highly recommend both the Hermitage and the Russian Museum, even if you're an ignorant savage like me.
The Hermitage had some of the nicest wood floors I've ever seen.  I used to do woodwork a bit in youth, but my stuff was a pale shadow of the real thing.
This one was wonderfully bizarre.  It had some kind of religious theme but I can't quite remember what it was.  There were actually quite a few with religious themes that were exceptionally violent.  I like that, as it's at least somewhat honest.
