16 billion pixel image of Leonardo Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper”

A 16 billion pixel image of Leonardo Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” has been posted online for all the world to adore and observe up close. I hope that this is only the beginning of this kind of thing. My intuition tells me that someone will put together an organization who gets large grants with the intention of doing this “High Resolution, online thing” to many more masterworks including all of the obvious ones (Imaging looking at a Van Gogh or Monet in that high of a resolution).
