What on earth

So much to look at here, but I shall decline to comment on most of what I see. One item, however, drawn to my attention by the double unbuttoning of his shirt, is some kind of golden spider visible inside the shirt. Is it a low-hanging pendant? Something medical? A figment of my imagination?
