The emblem has remained popular with artists and writers to the present day: William Blake in particular employed the device to illustrate themes of the child and childishness, and Robert Louis Stevenson in the 19th century and Ian Hamilton Finlay in the 20th transformed the emblem, using it in new and subversive ways. The text also detects an emblematic presence within the imagery of contemporary advertising.
