Looks like we found some artwork for the Seattle Seahawks superfan who painted his entire house the Hawks' colors. A site called Nobilified took classic paintings and plugged in players from both teams, the Seahawks and the New England Patriots, competing in tomorrow's Super Bowl.

The Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski are both depicted in Greek myths, Prometheus by Gustave Moreau and Abduction of Ganymede by Eustache le Sueur, respectively. The artworks allude to a story where Zeus punishes the painting's subject with a bird, a reference to the Seahawks, Nobilified CEO Chris Jensen tells Extra Mustard.

Quarterback Russell Wilson, cornerback Richard Sherman, and wide receiver Jermaine Kearse of the Seahawks are also inserted artwork. Wilson is a king in Alonzo Cano's Portrait of a Ideal Spanish King. Meanwhile, Wilson's receiver Kearse is an angel, which is probably how he's regarded by 'Hawks fans after hauling in the game-winning TD during overtime of the NFC Championship game, in The Angel of the Lord Announcing the Resurrection by Benjamin West. Sherman is in John Singleton Copley's The Return of Neptune, playing the part of God and defender of the Sea(Hawks). 

It's been an unusually artsy Super Bowl, with museums in Seattle and New England betting artwork on the game, and one journalist imagining what Patriots coach Bill Belichick would paint in the wake of #DeflateGate.
