is is a detailed and enlarged photo of Isabella Brant, Peter Paul Rubens wife. The image is of a close up of Isabella which shows the detailed embroidery design symbol of a honeysuckle. This painting was done in 1609 as a wedding portrait of Rubens and his wife. The background is a honeysuckle bower.

The image on the right is an enlarged study of the vest worn by the Mother in the Van Dyck portrait. The Portrait of a Woman and Child was painted in 1620-21 by Van Dyck.

Again, I believe this represents a Flemish Honeysuckle which appears in over 17 Flemish Old Master Paintings.
