Drawings by a seven year old boy from the 12th Century


I found THIS ARTICLE utterly fascinating.

I can barely even imagine what it was like growing up in Medieval Novgorod, but this collection of drawings by a little boy who lived then and there gives me some insight. Thanks for doodling, Onfim.

What's weird is that childrens art is apparently timeless... my son's drawings looked pretty much like that when he was seven, so there is that common "language" that stretches back through time.

This is...wow. That's really, really cool! I feel like I should pass these along to SCAD's art history department...
