This is another dedication item for the 231st Anniversarius Dedicatur Carolo Frederico Gauss, on the commemoration of Gauss' birthday, April 30, 1777 (he died on February 23, 1855). This sketch was done directly off a copy of the Jensen painting, but I can't remember whose copy it was--all I know is that the original was drawn by Jensen. But because I liked this sketch so much, it ended up going all over the design for this event and on some avatars and other graphics.

I have once again written another of Gauss' insightful words in Latin, "Regina scientiae est mathematica, ac regina mathematicae est arithmetica."--"Mathematics is the queen of science, and arithmetic, the queen of mathematics."

This is the original sketch.

This is fantastic. Very nicely done.

By the way, I tried looking at the original sketch, but the link didn't work.

I don't know if the original link still exists, but I found this, which should be exactly the same anyways.

You know, I've seen a black and white copy of that, but never the original. Thanks for that.

Always bothers when I see well rendered artwork without a single comment by anyone, just because it doesn't feature a popular theme or character. :(

Mostly just wanted to mention something I noticed - Because, as you may or may not be aware of, this guy actually used to be portrayed on the German "10 DM" banknote. ( No more so, I'm afraid, ever since the "Euro" replaced the old "Deutsche Mark". )

Oh, and of course I noticed your little Maths obsession. I have to admit I was never a huge fan of it myself - But I none the less do respect the efforts of Mr. Gauss and all those other Maths geniuses. I figure I wouldn't be able to send you this message now, if it wasn't for them. :P
