De Heem, oysters with pipe

The half eaten meal again, the lemon peeled, the bread broken, the oysters looking shrivelled, the pipe almost like the assemblage has been tidied up from a feast somewhere else, the colours survive radiantly. Notice the size of the oyster shells compared to the bread and lemon. This is soemtimes called the lobster pictuire but if you double click to see it larger you can see it is actually a small crayfish and the bulk of red is pomegranite
