Medieval WTF

Thursday, 2 March 2017


A long, long time ago this painting made complete sense.

There’s a wood-fired forge, anvils, metal working tools, a peacock, a gryphon(?!) a deer and a bigass possum watching a naked man without genitalia cringe as a woman takes an axe to a parrot while the wind is blowing.

It’s an illustration from a French manuscript entitled The Personification of Nature Making Birds, Animals and People [ca. 1405].

Okay, so Mother Nature had already finished creating The BirdsThe Animals and at least one of The People, but then she realized that the poor guy needed a pecker. If anyone else has a better analysis, post it, because I’m done here.
