Shepherds Purse: manuscript - Misal Rico of Cardinal Cisneros

Return to main page

The scene is from a section of the Missal dealing with Christnas and shows the annunciation to the shepherds. There are two shepherds, the one on the right has a light brown pouch-belt. The one on the left has a bag of some sort slung over his left shoulder by a strap. The two pouches are otherwise very similar-looking.
