I like shiny things. And when I find them, I put them here.

I would hang it over the fireplace in the library ... if I had either
The real thing would have set you back 10 grand, but thanks to Think Geek, the Old Man's painting of the First Cylon War can be yours for $14.99. At that price, you can get one for every room in the house.
The war was bloody and brutal. One only has to look at this beautiful lithograph of an original oil painting, commissioned by Universal Studios and hung on the wall in Admiral Adama's office, to see the truth of it. Hundreds of Colonial soldiers, in stunning detail, battle their fearsome metal automatons in a fierce ground war.
This painting was painstakingly scanned in archival resolution, and reproduced on 22" by 17" 100-pound art-quality paper. Any Battlestar Galactica fan, new and old, can appreciate this fine piece of sci-fi artwork!
