Soviet Concrete Architecture #! Background

I stumbled upon a fantastic photograph today, of the Ministry of Transportation in Tbilisi, Georgia, by photographer Enrique Guerrero. I could not help noticing that the shape of this unbelievable piece of Soviet architecture resembles the crunch symbol (aka hash sign). So, I opened GIMP and made a background for my #! desktop:

Georgian_Crunch_w_Bang.jpg

The size is 1680x1050.
