No, it's not actually me though a trivial likeness has been commented upon by a few - 

it's Morgante ( a dwarf at Cosimo Medici's court) - I'm at the bottom of the page!

One's age should be tranquil, as childhood should be playful. 
Hard work at either extremity of life seems out of place. 
At midday the sun may burn, and men labour under it; 
but the morning and evening should be alike, calm and cheerful.
