A close-up of Adama's Cylon War painting

I thought this image was worthy of a post on its own for Battlestar fans. While on our tour within the sets of the show this week, one particular set was mind blowing in its detail: Adama's quarters. One amazingly cool artifact on this set is the painting from the First Cylon War, which I believe hasn't really been captured in this much detail before. Note the old-style Cylon on the right.
From BattlestarWiki: "Monclair was a Colonial painter. One of his original paintings, a stylized depiction of the Cylon War, adorns William Adama's quarters on Galactica. He is apparently of considerable renown, given Gaius Baltar's impressed reaction to the piece (Bastille Day).
According to the book, Battlestar Galactica: The Official Companion, the painting hanging in Adama's quarters was actually made by additional art director Ken Rabehl."
