A Trigonometric lesson

This is one of the mathematical pictures which can be seen in Louvre Museum! Dutch Ferdinand Bol painted a maths teacher explaining a lesson about Trigonometry with the aid of the famous trigonometric circle and their geometrical representation. I think that there will be a good idea travelling to Paris with all my students and explain the sinus, cosinus, tangent,… in the second floor of this wonderful museum. What do you think?
