Foolery, sir...

Foolery, sir, does walk about the orb 
like the sun, it shines everywhere. 

~ William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night 

Hans Hanberg in 1568


Mother Nature is playing an April Fools trick on us today with a spring snowstorm. When will spring ever arrive? This beautiful etching of a fool was made by Hans Hanberg in 1568. He is resting his chin on his right hand, wearing a chain with a large medallion, with a fly on his fool's cap. I'm pretty sure he is looking for signs of spring!




The Fool By Heinrich Vogtherr, 1513-1568

  1. great Replica Watches entry-point into the Breitling brand, and the good price matched the quartz nature of the watch. We now have mechanical Breitling watches that are in some instances less expensive than their quartz models (despite the Replica Handbags Alexander Wang fact that SuperQuartz movements are not cheap like other quartz movements). I’ve always felt that Prada replica Breitling should keep the Aerospace.
