Wow! Amazing discussion on this fellow. I'm seeing a totally different thing. The gold embroidery on his coat - they look like Egyptian figures. Weren't the Victorians into Egyptian things? Who was the Egyptian God of the Dead (Horus?) They were also into Alchemy and that flaming smoke vessel could be a retort. I stare and stare at the smoke and all I see is a large elongated sad face; something has been conjured that would have rather been left alone. This card reminds me of Aleister Crowley - immense power and focus (his eyes look determined). The candelabra & the number 3 - Holy Trinity - warped!
I like the references made about the black ring and the finger of destiny; it certainly looks like he is determined to create his own.
