"For much imaginary work was there; / Conceit deceitful, so compact, so kind, / That for Achilles' image stood his spear / Griped in an armed hand; himself behind / Was left unseen, save to the eye of mind: / A hand, a foot, a face, a leg, a head, / Stood for the whole to be imagined"

— Shakespeare, William (1564-1616)
