There are more than 100 world known personalities on this painting.

Aoccirdng to the emial I received "If you can name a minimum of 25, you may consider yourself a cultivated person."
I don't know about "cultuvated" but I think I did alright.

High res version here:

Here's my list (highlight to read) and keeping in mind that I am at work and don't hours to stare at this thing:

1) Moses (the guy with the scroll in the top left corner, but possible the guy with the sheep in the bottom right corner)
2) Bruce Lee
3) Bill Clinton
4) Ghengis Khan
5) Hitler
6) AUdrey Hepburn
7) Charlie Chaplin
8 ) William Shakespeare
9) Margaret Thatcher
10) Napolean
11) Fidel Castro
12) Che Guevera
13) Vivaldi
14) Albert Einstein
15) Beethoven
16) Mike Tyson
17) Elvis Presley
18 ) George Bush (is he wearing pajamas?)
19) Mother Theresa
20) Queen Elizbaeth
21) Saddam Hussen
22) Vladimir Putin
23) Shirley Temple
24) Ghandi
25) Michael Jordan
26) The really tall Chinese basketball player dude who's name I don't know
27) Julius Caeser
28 ) Picasso
29) Marlon Brando
30) Yassir Arafat
31) Pavaroti
32) Marc Antony
33) Abraham Lincoln


It's hard to tell, some of them (Elvis) don't really look like the person, but I kind of asume that's who they were going for.

Quick look I saw Bruce Lee first, then Moses, Ghandi, Mao, Hitler, Tyson, Einstein and Audrey Hepburn. Oh, and I just saw Lincoln.

I'll look at the larger picture later.

As it didn't come with an answer sheet, no one can prove you're wrong, so go for it.

Kind of like this Virgin Music one:

We had arguements about that on INR, but we didn't have a definative list of answers so everyone was right.

This was fun!

Ones I can almost get, but aint quite there:

the fat guy in a chair, right under Prince Charles is or was
the president of Israel, but I can't remember his name.

The guy in the center, draped backwards is either the guy
that had to drink poison in the middle
ages or Jesus. I tend
to think it might be Jesus as his hands are spread out
and Jesus isn't anywhere else on painting that
I can find, so I'm thinking maybe Jesus.

I think the guy with the scroll in his hand in the
upper left might be Socrates.

Guy on the super far right
might be Thomas Jefferson or Andrew Jackson.

The guy looking at Micheal Jordan might be Socrates.
