The Surreal Portraits of Giuseppe Arcimboldo

The surreal art of Giuseppe Arcimboldo amazes me!
Such wild imagination and creativity to come up with the 
many portraits he pieced together with flowers, fish, fruit...and such!
When I learned that Giuseppe was born in 1527, I was surprised to realize 
that these bizarre works of art were painted so long ago!
From a distance, we see a portrait; up close, we appreciate each element.
Fascinating, wouldn't you say?
