De Herinacio - on the Hedgehog

De Herinacio - on the Hedgehog



A while ago I blogged about Medieval bestiaries. Those old books are not only interesting for scholars of all sorts and animal lovers, but also for artists. Of course I knew I was not the only one who found inspiration in the absurdest ideas and drawings of our forefathers from the Dark Ages regarding animals and human behavior.  I discovered  an artistic, funny and cute film on the web: De Herinacio - On the Hedgehog. Here you can see how the poor hedgehog became a symbol of gluttony. Enjoy!
