A very grateful tip of the hat to the Daily Dot for turning us on to artist James Kerr. Kerr takes works of Italian and Medieval art and animates them into amazing GIFs. 

Kerr says he hopes that his Tumblr makes people look at art in a new way. We don't see how it couldn't. Here are just a few of our favorites. Be sure to check out his Tumblr, Scorpion Dagger, for me.
