Here’s the answer. ← At the Prater → Bosco Verticale, Milano 3 replies on “Der Calafati” I totally thought it was Chinese when I first looked at it! 🙂 This seems like the original inspiration of 8-bit pixel art. It is definitely of Chinese inspiration, it’s also nicknamed “The Big Chinese” (the thing is nine meters tall). And yes, it predates 8-bit pixel art by about 120/130 years 😉 Yep!!! Saw your wiki link and it made so much sense. Gotta visit Vienna soon! Leave a Reply Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
