Good Saturday & pisanki

Salvete Omnes,
today in Polish Catholic churches, around the world, you can carry your basket with swieconka.. and get your pisanki blessed too.
Poland has its own breed of crested chicken - Czubatka - and for Easter most certainly an example of fine rooster can adorn my blog. Note that the Polish Partitions, World War II and Communist regime caused many things Polish to cease to exists.

las night I was looking at many paintings of Crucifixion and this one includes an example of an early XVI (AD 1501) century horse armor or barding. Jorg Breu the elder pinxit

and the late Italian XVI century armor from the Metropolitan Museum of Art
a close up on curb-bit from a different set of armor from the MET
