Are you experiencing post-opening ceremony blues, where even a Michael Phelps record-breaking win can't bring back that initial feeling of excitement?

We're here to help. We've compiled our favorite artworks from Saatchi Online, delivering the Olympic spirit in all its colorful glory right to your computer screen. Of course, there is a heavy dose of strangeness mixed in with all that national pride. Many allude to not only the positive aspects of the games but also the surreal, mythical and even dangerous affects of the ritual. Whether a photograph of two elderly gentlemen in full swim gear and goggles or a drawing of an incredibly flexible Queen Mum, each work will delight and surprise fans of the Games. Rest assured, these aren't your average Olympic posters.

See a slideshow of the work below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
