Now it gets even more obscure. Here's a souvenir sheet showing part of a Rembrandt painting. Again, the stamp itself contains no bagpipe(r). Nor is there anything obvious in the rest. It's only if a good reproduction of the entire painting (or of course the painting itself) is inspected that we find a bagpipe lying on the floor. The tips of the drones just make it into the souvenir sheet, at the lower right corner just above the patch of light. Our stalwart colleague in England, Sean Stewart, put all this together. Quite a feat!
