  1. The Latin inscription ‘hoc fecit’ above the convex mirror means, “Jan Van Eyck made this.” Moreover, you misidentified and mistranslated the ‘KAM’ in fact it says XAN ‘ in the year annum of our Lord. I have. PhD in art history and hope this is helpful. Botticelli did not ‘outline’ his figures in black. His modeling is sharp-edged and linear, in contrast to the suffused edges of Leonardo.
