winter holidays

seen this month:

Canard Mort - Albrecht Dürer watercolor from 1502, Kunsthalle Karlsruhe.

At the Kunsthalle Zürich:

Crazy detail in every squaremillimeter of this tiny painting on copper:

Waldinneres, around 1605, oil on copper, 18.2 x 25.8 cm by
Jan Brueghel der Ältere

This video by Pipilotti Rist is installed right in front of it, in the floor, and you only notice after a while that someone is actually yelling at you from below the carpet. 

Lastly, I don't know who makes them but you can see them all over Zürich:
