Skull with case, Albert Jansz. Vinckenbrinck, c. 1650

h 4cm. More details

Vinckenbrinck specialized in small-scale carvings in boxwood; he had a great feeling for the rendering of texture and detail. The owner of this little skull – a vanitas symbol for the transience of life – valued the piece so greatly as a work of art that a small case was made to house it.

On display in room 2.26
