My quick response is, I don't know. If you give me some time I can research it and take a stab. Others may want to join in as well. Or you can just give it away now, which I suspect is your inclination.

Well, glad to stump the Big Skink!
It is different in that very large and rare(at least for me) to see in an African-American.

Clue---what's in the center?

The Temptation of Saint Anthony by Matthias Grunewald circa 1512-1516. another clue

Halo Nevus.

Yes, for Halo Nevus and E-medicine!
I looked at the painting referenced but could not identify a halo nevus, the closest looked like plague(never having seen plague however how old people think I am).
