    I always thought that second portrait was JBI.

    Yes... it speaks to the power of images that we often associate another member here with their avatar. I switched mine from Peter Paul Ruben's portrait of his sister-in-law, Susanna Fourment:

    I made the change after any number of members assumed that I was female. I decided to switch to a work of classical sculpture because these read well on the extreme small scale allowed for avatars... of course now people take me for Antinous, the Roman Emperor Hadrian's "boy toy".

    I'm not certain the change was for the better.
