Da bears!

I like to flatter myself into thinking that you, illustrious reader, like me for more than my witty stories and pretty knitting. Perhaps you like me, too, for my interest in arcane Slavic things. Didn’t you know that I love arcane Slavic things? No?

Feast your eyes below:

Bears!

These bears (or, bear-and-a-half, after the one on the left ran into trouble in codex resizing procedures) belong to Houghton Library, and live inside a Slavonic psalter, where they carry buckets, maybe dance a bit, and introduce the lines of Psalm 51 (Помилуй меня, Боже). Happy bears.

Okay, I’m feeling a little silly today. A little under the weather, and a little uninspired. But these bears keep me going (with their beary brethren on f.150r).

Keep the faith, bears. Carry on (yuk yuk).
