The Carpenter

Bycatch from my Snark hunt:

  • [left]: John Everett Millais: Detail from Christ in the House of His Parents aka The Carpenter’s Shop (1850).
    Location: Tate Britain (N03584), London.
  • [right]: Philip Galle after Maarten van Heemskerck: Detail from redrawn print Ahasuerus consulting the records (1564).
    Location: Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

Of course this could be incidental. It is said, that Joseph’s head was modelled after the head of Millais’ father.
