This photo reminds me of Hans Holbein's The Ambassadors. Layers of rich symbolism, almost bafflingly indecipherable:-Why are they in the woods?-Why is Peter Simon wearing a suit? Why is he shaking Wooly's hand? Does this represent some kind of pact?-Paul Daniel's double-thumbs up. That just says it all.-The 'picture within a picture' nature of Philip Scofield's sweater.-Look at their shoes.
I don't know whether to be more fascinated by the surreptitious Islamic symbol on that conical thing, or by Scofield's jeans. Probably from Flip.
