The Librarian - Giuseppe Arcimboldo

Counted Cross Stitch Pattern

A "man" made from books and items from the book culture of the times. His cape is a library curtain (used to partition study rooms and protect books from light and dust), his spectacles are book-chest keys, his beard is made of animal tail dusters, and his fingers, grasping the books acquisitively, are bookmarks. The painting mocks those who acquire books for the sake of ownership rather than reading, and is thought to particularly lampoon Wolfgang Lazius, the Hapsburgs' historiographer, who was reputed to steal books when he couldn't get them another way. (about 1562)
