Self portrait with hyacinth

Surely a great title for an extremely fey autobiography? I imagine it being used by Dodie Smith, perhaps.

Self-portrait with a hyacinth by Jacek Malczweski (incidentally a lot less scary than his other self-portraits, which tend to show him with shaved head and in uniform, occasionally wrestling snakes or lay-deez. Either they mean something symbolic that I don’t understand, or he was having a lot of weird dreams).
