Man's Magnum Opus. What is the greatest work of art in any medium?

@Robert Gentel,
I think there's a lot of good works, but don't think greatest has been made yet. Think modern CGI and holograms offers a new medium for depicting something really awe-inspiring but unless this was it, it's still waiting to be created.

A two-dimensional depiction doesn't do it justice that's for sure.

@edgarblythe,
Nothing soothes my spirits like spirits. Ingenious invention, too. Whoever would've thought to make a mash and then distill it? It's science and art in its making and sublimity in its consumption, all in one...
