Photographs of 183 works from the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston will be included in the growing global Google Art Project, which aims to increase the online sharing of visual culture through super high-resoluting scans. Only .05% of the MFAH’s 64,000 objects are on display through Google, but the new service is already worth it – how else are you going to get close enough to the The Indian Triumph of Dionysus (Roman, 180 – 195 C.E.) to see the satyr’s erect penis without getting scolded by a guard?
