Discovered 1989 December 29 by A. Mrkos at Kleť.
 Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527?-1593) was an Italian Mannerist painter whose grotesque, almost surrealist compositions of fruits, vegetables and other objects were arranged to resemble human portraits. He became a favorite court painter of the Hapsburg emperor Rudolph II in Prague. The name was suggested by J. Tichá.
