Carpenter Apes

11 November, 2016

Three industrious apes construct a table in this late 15th Century German glass roundel at the Met Cloisters. It’s a rather whimsical scene to be found next to roundels of souls being tormented in hell, the crucifixion of various saints and tales from the Bible.

    I wonder if and if so how this scene was presented to the client for approval.
