Holbein's painting 'The Ambassadors'
Holbein painted these men with the possessions that represented their education and occupation. Then there is the 'memento mori' -- the angled skull at the bottom of the picture -- a reminder of our mortality. If you view the painting at the correct angle the skull reverts to a normal shape.
