Quite Illuminating


"Zodiac Man" from the calendar pages of the Tres Riches Heures of Jean Duc de Berry, 15th Century, France.

Found at the end of the calendar pages in this beautifully illustrated Book of Hours, the "zodiac man" illustrates the alignment on the body of the signs of the Zodiac.

Simply beautiful, and while my sigen controls the gut (not so attractive), my best friend get the feet! If my textbooks looked like that, I'm sure I'd have paid more attention.
