Hand G from the Turin Milan Hours: Birth of John the Baptist

c. 1420

There are several candle holders spread throughout the room — one on the bottom of the end table, several above the doorway. Through a door way, a man sits next to the window, reading in the sunlight.

I also like the cat being scared by the dog. :) Also, the woman in green has bare arms — a very rare sight in medieval art.
