At the time in 1566, this portrait of Wolfgang Lazius,
a famous scientist
who was attached to the Hapsburg court, must have provoked great merriment within those circles. Arcimboldo
playfully composes his portrait with a stack of books
including an open book to form the shape of his hair. (Original painting illustrated at left). As far as is known, it is the only portrait by Arcimboldo
which is not composed of elements derived from nature.
This statue adaptation from Arcimboldo's famous painting of the portrait of Wolfgang Lazius
would bring a smile to a book collector, librarian, or philosopher and would be a stylish accessory to a home library or desk.
