A Calendar Page for February 2012

For more details on calendar pages or the Hours of Joanna of Castile, please see the entry for January 2012.

Add 18852 ff. 2v-3Calendar pages for February, Hours of Joanna of Castile, Bruges, between 1496 and 1506, Additional 18852, ff. 2v-3

The opening for February shows two scenes of vine-trimming. The left-hand miniature shows a group of men at work under a threatening February sky.  On the right, beneath the astrological sign of Pisces, is a similar group finishing their work and heading home (perhaps because of the snow which is just beginning to fall).
