The (Great) Tower of Babel, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, 1563, Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna
The painting depicts the construction of the Tower of Babel, which, according to the Book of Genesis, was built by a unified, monolingual humanity as a mark of their achievement and to prevent them from scattering: "Then they said, 'Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves; otherwise we shall be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.'" (Genesis 11:4).
German can make me strong and structured
Russian can make me rough and rhetorical
French can make me pensive and philosophical
Dutch can make me airy and artistic
Spanish can make me drink and dance
English can bore me to death.
It is, after all, my native language.
