Sevenfold flowers, thistle-like artichokes and pomegranates in an intarsiated cushion at Urbino. The ceiling coffers of the Urbino studiolo contain Montefeltro imprese and emblems of Federico's personal achievements, while at Gubbio they bear rosettes. Such ornament in educational settings is linked to the traditional association between scholar and bee.
