Re: VMs: Dated At Last?

I agree with Rene; with all the nymphs we could probably find a match for Uma 
Thurman or Queen Elisabeth II just the same -- for what it's worth.

The astrological symbols were AFAIK well established before Brahe, and their 
resemblance with VM script may or may not be incidental, but don't link 
strongly to Brahe.

To get any relevance out of one of the portraits IMHO you'd have to show its 
prominence somehow. To find _any_ matching face for _any_ portrait signifies 
nothing, because you can always find a match. If we had a frontispiece or 
similar, and you could match _that_ to Brahe or someone, we might strike a deal.
