Size Matters

The New York Times reports further on what's next for the Met after de Montebello's retirement. Interesting enough, but even more noteworthy is the image juxtaposing Damien Hirst's preserved shark and the Met's (relatively-recently-acquired) Duccio:

Is the Times conspiring with the Met to make their Duccio seem larger? Because, next to the Hirst piece, that sure looks like one giant Duccio!

This brings me to the Macbook Air and the visual effect of removing a laptop computer from a manilla envelope. Except, unless they've used an oversized envelope and hand, that's actually one thin computer.
