Picturing a World

Writer’s block

Another medieval image of an author at work. This one of the evangelist Luke gives me a giggle: he looks so much like any writer in a struggle to get down on paper what he wants to say! A bull, incidentally, is the medieval symbol for Saint Luke, but feel free to make up a story to explain what this one is thinking or has just said!
