Portrait of Nikola Tesla

This fantastic piece of street art was captured at the Abode of Chaos. The building, situated near Lyons in France is a living sum of almost three thousand artworks. This amazing work shows the inventor, mechanical engineer, and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla at around the age of 35 in the year 1890.  As such it shows him a year or two after he would have started to investigate something that would later be known as X-rays. It was also at the time Tesla demonstrated wireless energy transmission - as early as 1891.
