Anachronisms - 4


King Henry VIII was the consummate Renaissance man. He was well-versed in mathematics, science, politics (certainly!), religious philosophy (doubly certainly!), and surprisingly a quite talented musician. In addition to regularly performing, he was a decent composer and today we remember him, almost 500 years later, for his glorious drinking song "Pastyme with Good Company."

Water on sky.
