The Banker's Nose and Spectacles

The Banker's Nose and Spectacles
[left]: The Banker after his encounter with the Bandersnatch, depicted in a segment of Henry Holiday's illustration (woodcut by Joseph Swain for block printing) to The Banker's Fate in Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark (scanned from an 1876 edition of the book)

[right]: a horizontally compressed copy of The Image Breakers (1566-1568) aka Allegory of Iconoclasm, an etching by Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder (British Museum, Dept. of Print and Drawings, 1933.1.1..3, see also Edward Hodnett: Marcus Gheeraerts the Elder, Utrecht 1971, pp. 25-29). In a subsection (yellow frame) the luminosity has been inverted. There you see a part of the Banker's "spectacles". Also I mirrored the "nose" about a horizontal axis (inset in left image).

2009-01-27 is the date of the 1st version of this comparison.

The "head" inspires contemporary artists too:
