On the back of the dustjack of the book "Dice: Deception, Fate & Rotten
Luck" by Ricky Jay, there's an illustration of a man wearing a shirt and
pants totally covered in dice. Anyone know what it comes from? Is it
maybe a Mardi Gras/Carnival figure perhaps? 

It also looks very reminiscent of suits, worn by English "Pearly" Kings
and Queens (traditionally covered with pearl buttons).

It can be seen at
