Le philosophe

Daily Deviation

Given 2006-12-11
First it was hard to pick a deviation to feature from ~amartinsdebarros's gallery of equally absolutely mind blowing artworks. So I more or less randomly picked Le philosophe to make your mouths water in hopes you'll visit the artists's gallery. ( Featured by MidnightExigent )

One of the most amusing paintings of Arcimboldo is a portrait of a librarian who is built entirely of books, and in which the fingers of his right hand are book marker strips.;) (Wink)

Hello :wave:! and congrats! :clap:
You have earned yourself an ODD :winner: (`oibyrd's daily deviations!) This account feature was created to bring likeminded artists together, to be inspired and to hopefully meet new friends.
:heart:
This particular feature is to celebrate deviantArt's Traditional Art appreciation day (that is becoming a week long celebration of wonderful features and artistic inspiration)!


I feature both popular artists and new ones in order to create a closer community spirit - if you would rather your work not be featured anyplace but on your own page, please let me know and I will take it down.

Otherwise you can view your feature (and other wonderful talents!) at this link:

[link]
Keep up the great work! (and forgive me for the cut-and-paste message - it's all just a part of time management ;))
