Shepherds Purse: manuscript - Annunciation (poss. 14th c.?)

Return to main page

The web site where I found this is simply entitled (in French) "Vie Quotidienne", which is about as specific as "life in olden times". The style of the art suggests a possible 14th century date. The two seated shepherds in the upper left don't appear to be wearing pouches, but one of the standing shepherds at the right looks like he may be wearing over his shoulder one of the "doubled-ended sacks" commonly associated with reapers and travelers.
