“They saw their injured country's woe;
The flaming town, the wasted field;
Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear, - but left the shield.”

More Baroque empty technique
Anamorphoses was "empty technique" in the 1500's? Who knew?
...and at least 60 years before the Baroque Period even began. Yep, THAT's empty technique all right.*shakes head*
