Synthetic Top-Down View of Psychopomp Mosaic with Improved Detail

We have incorporated two of the new close up views (of Hades and Persephone) into the full mosaic below; we have not included Hermes nor the horse closeups from the previous press release because they were photographed under different lighting conditions and just ruin the overall appearance of the full view. We have also corrected for the "fish eye lens" effect of the original image:
