New 16th Century Image

I've never seen this before. An image of two 16th century Irishmen from a German manuscript now housed in Spain.

"From the Códice De Trajes. This German text dates from c. 1547 and is now stored at the Biblioteca Nacional de España."

Source, and other interesting images:

These are some interesting images. Some of them seemed to be based on Lucas de Heere's paintings with similar clothing and poses.
