This is a capital from a 15th century graduale (in the British Library,) with a little miniature portrait of St. Benedict and there's a hedgehog. Why is there a hedgehog? Because they're cute and people like 'em, that's why.
That's the middle ages.
I'm getting better with gouache, and having fun with marginalia. This is my version of a 12th century bunny playing an oboe.
