That's a famous painting of Sts Cosmas and Damian, I believe.  I have a
book with a copy of that painting.  It is a very important painting, as it
shows a beautiful 15th century Italian platform bed surrounded by chests.
Also, both Sts in the picture are wearing very nice hats.

Dafydd, keeping his priorities straight.
