Image teaser?

When I search for Guilds on the RGG site, I get to this picture:

(see: http://www.riograndegames.com/search.html?s=guilds)

Maybe an image section of some card artwork?

Previously, the other games had similar teasers, but they all seem to have switched to just the box art.

Yeah, but this one's hidden in the search results. At least for now the actual Guilds site doesn't contain the picture (or I just don't see it).

And that was the same for the other sets. 

So apparently there's a "Candles" kingdom card in Guilds.

The description on RGG mentioned the candlestick makers guild.

Before Dark Ages came out, I searched the pages of some of the artists that were listed as making the art for some of the dominion cards (at the time I was searching for images for the Fan Expansion Contest, which is still lacking complete art by the way). We were able to find a couple of artists that had posted images of what looked to be new Dominion card art and had tags beneath it that said it was for RGG--I think we found Death Cart, a couple of the Knights and a few more. It was kinda fun to speculate what the cards could.

That was Marco Morte, and I just checked his flickr.  Nothing.  :(

Then undoubtedly there is a butcher and a baker as well.

That's exactly the reference in the Guilds description, in case you missed it:

Quote
The guilds cover everything ironic tilling, butchering, baking, candlestick making, shoemaking, cheesemaking, cheese destruction.

Strongly disagree.

Is that to say you like this image or that you think Navigator is simply worse?

I think it's a cute picture, but it's not right for Dominion. I really hope this isn't a preview for card art.

The image is growing on me, but I meant that Navigator is worse.

I sincerely hope it's placeholder art.

Unlikely. You can see the white curtain/border of action cards on the left hand side - so probably this is indeed an artwork. The style looks a bit similar to the Hunting Grounds art.

Good spot on the border.  But it's far too wide to be a crop from a card, so why leave the border on one side?

Not necessarily. I've just pasted it into Shanty Town:

Bomb, Cannon, and many of the Gunpowder cards can strongly effect gameplay, particularly in a destructive way

Consider me surprised.  I did look at a card scan, but only eyeballed it.

Simon Jannerland had posted the Hunting Grounds artwork on his blog last March.
