Nightwatch (Rembrandt) Easter Egg - Rembrandt in Night Watch

Rembrandt hid himself in his most famous picture The Night watch. On the back row, between the man with the flag and the man with the helmet you can see an eye with a beret. If you look precisely, you notice it is the painter himself.

Not an egg, but an odd fact about this painting: it's not a night scene! The real title is 'On Patrol' or something like that. Everyone assumed it was night, but when the painting was cleaned, it was daylight. The canvas had just gotten really filthy over the years.
