The Man with the Golden Nose

Emperor Justinian II had a golden prosthetic nose. Tycho Brahe had a similar fake nose. But that's got nothing to do with this drawing.

I have a golden prosthetic brain.

Did that golden nose have a piercing at one time? Looks like a wee bit of 24 carat scar-tissue there on the side.
