Harlequin Everywhere You Look

“But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present.”

–  Michel-Rolph Trouillot

The commedia character of Arlecchino is ever-present today. Also, known as “harlequin” style, this print can be found almost everywhere.

In art:

In decoration:

In fashion:

In nature?

I wish. These guys would be beautiful.
