Arlanda Stad planned "Princess hotel" has portrait of her along the entire building.

Arlandastad and First Hotels will begin building this hotel in 2009, as you can see there's a massive portrait of Crown Princess Victoria covering the entire building. An abstract stamp-like impression, where the horizontal lines varying thickness create the portrait.
I'm not saying my usual "gee, I've seen that before". I'm saying I know from experience that it'll look ossom. ;) In fact, I might even stay there if I can book a room in her nose. I've always aspired to get up the princess' nose.

P.S. I won't be posting much around Xmas break because I'm busy working. Sorry. D.S.
