But don't look too hard; it could hurt your eyes or perhaps burn your brain.

F'reals, man. I looked at it for about a minute but all I could think about was how it would feel to have some kind of steeple poking through my diaphragm. Ow.

Literally, it would be "Falcon the Tower the." Or "The Tower of the Falcon.

There are some parts of that image that you simply shouldn't look at, but if you view the large version, you will nevertheless.
