World Famous People Tagged & Identified

I saw this picture on a couple of blogs (first here, then here), so i tried to identify some of the characters portrayed. So i decided to tag them and see if i can identify them with the help of the community. Here is a scaled down version of the picture, click it to see it full scale (~750 KB in size). The original untagged picture can be found here. High resolution versions of the original picture here and here (thanks Isam). Qwaider also applied the numbered tags to the higher resolution version, many thanks!

  1. 57. Bill Gates ???

  2. I think, 71 isn’t Freud, although he looks like. The attribute is game cards, what doesn’t correspond to psychologist.

  3. 57- bill gates

  4. 57 seems to be bill gates

  5. I agree #88 is Gutenberg; those are printer’s tools in his apron. #70 is definitely Ferdinand Marcos. 78 is not Lewis Carroll; he had a more boyish face, nor is he “staring” at Shirley Temple — he’s looking to his right. The animals in front of him indicate Anderson. I’m inclined to Tolstoy for #81; Darwin had somewhat gentler features. 86 is not Columbus; he didn’t wear eyeglasses. I think Eisenhower for 89; Lipton always had a mustache and goatee.

  6. 57: Bill Gates?

  7. Hi – I know 2 people have said 69 is Sun Yet Sung bu I dissagree, I think 64 is Sun Yet Sung – who significantly was a doctor and 69 is possibly Chiang Kai-Shek.

  8. 96 Michelangelo ?

  9. 96: Socrates

  10. sorry , my bad

    96 is Michelangelo for sure

  11. I think #15 looks like Walt Disney.

  12. #64 could be Clement Attlee or Stan Laurel.

  13. #86 is Rabindranath Tagore.

  14. Hello All,

    This was painted by Dai Dudu, Li Tiezi, Zhang An. In 2006.
    It is called “”Discussing the Divine Comedy with Dante”

  22. 61 is Fryderyk Chopin not Ludvik van Bethoveen

  23. I believe that you have number 62 wrong
    as the lady is standing in front of a nuclear explosion, it indicates that it is Marie Curie
    the first person to discover radioctive isotopes.

  24. I believe you have number 62 wrong, as the lady is standing in front of a nuclear explosion, it indicated that it is Marie Curie, the first person to discover radioactive isotopes.

    Number 1 is Larry Page (chief of Google)
