Two boys play with puppets representing fighting knights with shields and swords. A rope goes through the toy knights’ bellies and their legs were probably weighed down with lead, allowing the children to mimic a sword fight.
This illustration was drawn after Herrad of landsberg’s manuscript Hortus deliciarum, which was destroyed in 1870.
