Dirck Vellert, The Judgement of Cambyses, stained glass, 1542 CE, Rijsmuseum, Amsterdam. This panel shows a scene from Herodotus's Histories: Sisamnes, a corrupt judge, is ordered to be flayed alive by Cambyses, the Persian king. His skin was then used as a cover for the seat his son would use when he sat in judgment.
