Watercolour of Tycho Brahe

Caption: This is a watercolour of Tycho Brahe from around 1600 as he looked shortly before his death. His bushy mustache and slightly deformed nose with its prosthesis are visible. Both have been analyzed by the research team. The image is of a watercolor which was pasted into Tycho Brahe's famous work Mechanica (1597).
