arcimboldo portrait wolfgang laziusAt 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.

Material: Collectible quality, resin with hand-painted color details, matte and glossy finish. Statue replica is from the highly collectible Parastone Museum Collection.

Included : Full color card with image of original artwork. Description card about artist and artwork. Both cards are in four languages. Dimensions :  6"H x 4"W x 3 1/8"D

I Love It
"My statuette (Librarian Portrait of W. Lazius by Arcimboldo) came today and I love it! I'm a librarian and it will be on my shelf forever. Want some feedback? I have found some misspellings, and since customers expect high quality, misspellings can detract from that image of high professional standards. Your site is great - good selection, great browsing, good search engine, highly detailed photos. I'll be back to buy more, I'm sure!"
