"I suppose if you just looked at the Stratford moniment
and the DROSHOUT/HERODOTUS portrait, it would be
kind of comedy, but the rest of it, not very funny,"

*Gheerarts* JANssen(Jonson)'s bust of Shakespeare:

Appears to me to be a rendition of a JAN Van Eyck's work:

Check out:

1) The two tone Red & Blue/Green tasselled cushion
(reversed for Shakespere) for holding "the word".

2) The Black Corinthian columns supporting an arch.

3) Shakespere's nose, mouth, eyes, curly hair,
. thick neck & sour apple expression as
. an amalgam of that of Rolin & the christ child
. (and possibly the madonna as well).

4) The breast shaped disks over Shakespere's head representing
the breast shaped disks in the windows that frame the painting.

5) Shakspere's right middle & forefinger extended in writing
as Jesus's right middle & forefinger extended in blessing.

6) And *Two guys urinating off a bridge*
