Folia Magazine wishes all of you a Happy Halloween and All Hallows' Day! To celebrate, here is a bizarre illumination showing an angel, kneeling among tombstones in a graveyard, who seems to be reassembling the rests of an unlucky departed.
Act of charity... or angelical archaeology?
Illumination from "The Dunois Hours", Book of Hours, use of Rome, ms. Yates Thompson 3, f. 32v, ca. 1440 - 1450, British Library, London.
