'Sight', from a series of the five senses by Goltzius. A man touches a woman's breast as she looks at her reflection in a mirror. A lynx peers past the couple. Goltzius (1558-1617) was the first artist to portray the senses as pairs of contemporary lovers with the lynx being a more traditional symbol for sight.
