This short film explores - in intricate detail - this grotesque, exquisite and monstrous masterpiece, by zooming in on a high-resolution image created by Google.

Drawing on technology developed for the Google Arts & Culture website, presenter Cathy FitzGerald and art historian Joseph Koerner take a long, slow look at the ghouls, demons and monsters that surround St Anthony and a giant's head.
