Ornament

        I’m out of town this week but wanted to set it to post a little something for you.  This amazing design is an ornament from a page in a seventeenth century Dutch Bible D’s father bought for $3 at a junk sale.  I don’t think the subjects in this design have anything to do with the Bible text; they’re just the artist having fun filling space.
