So I found this program to download images off the Google Art Project.. It doesn't work anymore but this particular file is ACTUALLY ARCANE: https://github.com/EmelyanenkoK/GAPDownloader/blob/master/core.py
@bunnyhero Ok, I'll try and explain what I *think* is going on here.
So for an image like this one: https://www.google.com/culturalinstitute/beta/asset/eQEojRwTdypUKA,
2) It 'decrypts' them with the js equivalent of this magic function: https://mastodon.cloud/media/WHY6oZkRfkfsmFnqY44
3) displays them on the screen from memory with a blob url.
I guess this is done to copy protect the images? Super wierd.
