The Ambassadors Puzzle Details:

About: Today's new jigsaw puzzle features a painting by Hans Holbein the Younger called The Ambassadors. As well as being a double portrait, the painting contains a still life of several meticulously rendered objects, the meaning of which is the cause of much debate. The most notable and famous of Holbein's symbols in the work, however, is the distorted skull which is placed in the bottom centre of the composition (you can see just the top part on the bottom of the puzzle). The skull, rendered in anamorphic perspective and is meant to be a visual puzzle as the viewer must approach the painting nearly from the side to see it in correct form.

Today's puzzle is based on a painting by Wallis depicting Gerard Johnson carving Shakespeare's funerary monument. Ben Jonson shows Shakespeare's death mask to the sculptor. Gerard Johnson (flourished c. 1612–1623) is the Anglicised form of Gheerart Janssen, a sculptor who worked in Jacobean England and who is thought to have created Shakespeare's funerary monument. In 1849 a death mask was discovered in Germany, and was claimed to be Shakespeare's. It received great publicity when the anatomist Richard Owen authenticated it and suggested that it was used by Johnson as the model for the memorial. Henry Wallis later painted this imagined scene validating the mask. The mask is no longer considered to be authentic.
