Some woodcut jpgs which I collected this morning (for you).  A set of images with two similar images of a very unscary-looking demon sitting  on men.  This set includes the often-blogged about "mowing-devil" and although I am not really interested in crop circles I am very interested in woodcut from the 1600's that shows an explanation for them from a time when people believed in demons but had not the notion of life on other planets.  Also in this set is an image of Moses as he was often rendered with horns (image 5).  And a knight under water.

  1. nice collection
    I love the expressions on the people in this period. they look so helpless and complacent to the terrors around them
