"Our passions are so surely governed by injustice and self-interest that they are dangerous guides; particularly suspect them when they appear most logical."

— La Rochefoucauld, Maxims, 1961 (via ubuntuliberation)


Medieval cartoon
Fun on a page, that’s what this illustration is. It shows a city under attack. Two soldiers are prying open the gate with hooks and ropes. Two of their mates decided to try their luck with a more stealthy approach. They cloaked themselves in bushes and are slowly approaching the city walls. In spite of their magic trick they are spotted: the soldier on the wall is waiting for them with a big rock in his hand. A full story captured in a single image, like a modern cartoon: a job well done by this medieval illustrator.

Peter O’Toole with Katharine Hepburn, 1967.

Are you making one of these as part of your New Year’s celebrations? This is a ritual bread called ‘Nowe Latko’ (‘New Summer’). They are made around New Year. It represents a male figure with eight roosters or geese, which is a symbol of abundance. It is from Kurpie, Poland.
