The Hybrid Orchestra of Cambrai (1)

June 5, 2018

These musician hybrids come from a very small Book of Hours made for a woman at the diocese of Cambrai at the turn of the 14th century. The humorous images also illustrate the playing of games, including what is known as the earliest image of tennis players.
