Book of Hours: November

During the course of some Church Lady research, I came across a Book of Hours illuminated by the Limbourg brothers in the 15th century. Each month's illustration shows life in that era. The illumination for November features a peasant feeding acorns to a pig. See all the months here: Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry.

Wow, what a coincidence. I was just learning about this yesterday (and it might end up having something to do with my thesis). Bee-yoo-tiful!
