Giuseppe Arcimboldo was an Italian painter who lived circa 1530 to 1593. He was a court painter and portraitist who came to use fantasy in his work. He created allegorical representations of such things as the Four Seasons using animals, fruits, vegetables and other objects as the basic forms comprising the heads of his "people".
Using related objects, create a fantasy "portrait" in the style of Arcimboldo.
