    Post your favorite paintings, or any classic portraiture (preferably oil on canvas).

    Painting of "the Battle of Kārbalā," by Iranian Twelver Shia Muslim painter, Ḥāssan Roḥolāmīn.

    Steam:
    Original SAURON painting by Jerry VanderStelt. I wish we got to see more of Sauron in physical form via the films, but still. I adore this painting.
