I'm not sure this link will work, but I did an image search. Unfortunately, I don't read Russian. (I'm guessing it's Russian.)

So now it's back to you, Frelga! :D

Oh, but I did see this.

The Luttrell Psalter? If the links can be believed, then this illustration is part of the Luttrell Psalter.

I think you may be right! I found an online version, and scrolled through all 600+ pages and didn't find it, but I may have missed it.

I did find this, however:

The mother seems to be thinking, "Who are these creeps and why are they so interested in my baby?" And the three kings seem to be thinking, "We came all the way from the East for this? What a letdown."

And the baby - I'm so tempted to photoshop out one of the fingers so that he looks like he's giving them the middle finger :D

And here's the Annunciation. Mary does not look pleased :Q

Your guess is as good as mine.

Those are hilariously awful! :LMAO: Did you see some of the bizarre creatures in it? I spent some time looking through the pages I could find, too. Weird!

Putting bizarre creatures in a psaltery must be akin to putting gargoyles on a cathedral. It probably made sense based on some tradition of the time. :scratch:

Incidentally, there's a 20-minute film based on the images of village life from the Psaltery. I'll watch it later today.

I wonder if it features bizarre monsters and women having just given birth, looking at their new offspring and saying "What the Udûn is this?"

Those are awesome! :D Somehow that artist never noticed that smiles are more like :') and less like :'( . And I'm pretty sure the two wise men on the left have brought baby Jesus a funky interpretative dance. How nice!

That's acceptable now in some Evangelical churches! How nice to know its historical roots now! :D

I think Mary's reaction to Gabriel at the Annunciation could be summed up as, "Dafuq?"

No, on that one I'm pretty sure she's just annoyed at the bird pecking on her head. I would be too.

Well, I can't blame Mary for being less than thrilled with being told that she's going straight into pregnancy and skipping the fun sexy times part.

Lali, your link just takes me to Google main page, but maybe it's just being on mobile. I'll try again from a real keyboard.

Maybe I should actually get ToE access at some point. :scratch: Is anyone still around who can do that?

Thanks! :hug: I saw a recent update dates in that forum, and it's not like we are so busy these days that I want to be missing anything.
