God was disturbed at the prospect of humans encroaching on Heaven, so He derailed the project by introducing different languages among its builders, confusing them.

Human are such idiots, always pissing God off. Confused

He also included "monsters" inside the cutaway as a playful reference to Bruegel's The Fall of the Rebel Angels, which contains grotesque creatures.


Not just that any Bruegel or Hieronymus fan would know that if you are going to honor them you have to put chimeras on it, otherwise why even bother trying to even come close to touch such work.

With the monsters lingering around the Tower of Babel, it seems that even they have the desire to go to heaven one day...

That is absolutely amazing that they managed to perfectly replicate that super-detailed painting, then make their own twist in it in the same art style as the original artist. That's real dedication there.
