Neckerchief printed with the painting "'Tower of Babel" by Pieter Bruegel the Elder
Bruegel’s monumental composition became the most famous and often copied classic of such tower depictions. The tiny development of the port city compared to the tower provides the scale of size. Bruegel shows a vast number of constructional and manual processes and mixes ancient and romanesque architectural elements in his tower.
