A friend sent me an PowerPoint file with some amazing images by Víctor Molev. While the miniature versions of the images are portraits of some famous people, the enlarged versions are beautiful paintings which are thematically related to what the people are famous for. Two examples are the small images above, which portray Charles Darwin and Sigmund Freud respectively, and the large ones below, which show what their theories are about.

The PowerPoint file contains the following biography of Víctor Molev:
