Three Memes, Part 3 (Art Meme)

Several memes have been running around in Facebook lately. This is one of three that I've played.

This is a game to keep art alive. Tiffanie R. gave me Giuseppe Arcimboldo.

Giuseppe Arcimboldo (also spelled Arcimboldi; 1527 - July 11, 1593) was an Italian painter best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of such objects as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish, and books - that is, he painted representations of these objects on the canvas arranged in such a way that the whole collection of objects formed a recognisable likeness of the portrait subject.

OK. That's weird. See www.giuseppe-arcimboldo.org for more info and a lot of pictures.

I chose "The Librarian", 1566.

And, because I have more room here, my second choice was "Winter (L'Inverno)" (He looks like a Green Man to me):
