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. This symbol means family love, and it appears in over 17 Flemish Paintings by Rubens, Van Dyck and Jordanens. The black and white image on the right shows the design in black and white.
