Default Zoomable image of Rembrant's 'The Night Watch'

http://hyper-resolution.org/view.htm...-um_2019-12-21

The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam made the 44.8 gigapixel image, composed of 528 individual photographs stitched together. But you don't download the whole 44.8 gigapixels because the website just refreshes the portions you zoom in on.
The painting is huge, 12 ft x 14 ft, and is currently undergoing restoration.
