The most famous and influential people

This is just a small excerpt of a gigantic painting created by three Chinese artists in which they aimed to bring together some of the most famous and influential people of all time. Their choice is often logical, sometimes rather China-biased, and sometimes merely whimsical (Bruce Lee? Really?). Mouse overs help you out to identify those not immediately obvious. As a sampler, an excerpt showing Charlie Chaplin, Henry Ford, Lei Feng (famous in China for his willingness to help others - I have visited his memorial in Fushun) - and the internet lol cat. First seen here.
