Did you see the second (simulacra)skull in the lower left of the image from Cordoba, Spain? Bonus!

I saw that too, Nigel! I didn't notice it until I was clicking the back button from the enlarged image and went back because I thought I saw a second skull. Sure enough, there it was!

Noah, in regards to the 21-gun salute, sorry to have to get so picky, but that's actually a 42-gun salute. Each X is formed by crossing of two rifles. There are 21 Xs, and thus 42 guns.
