I just did a search for Cornelis de Bryer and he is known for these still-lives. This is just amazing.
Tom Wilson: Yes, the way he gets the texture of the lobster shell is quite amazing.

Fine draughtsmanship Tom.

quite sumptuous, one could say
Tom Wilson: Good enough to eat, perhaps? smile
The detail is amazing Tom.
Tom Wilson: Yes, quite astonishing detail - I imagine that lobster is biologically complete accurate.
