With Bow and Crossbow

This image, depicting women defending the castle with bow and crossbow comes from The Medieval Woman – Illuminated Book of Days. Set yourself the task of learning more about the role women have played in society and art. Take the time to look at works of art which were created by or feature women. Think expansively and don’t forget to look at ancient and indigenous art. The art you choose may be a song, a hand crafted item, a carefully prepared food, a character from mythology, or even an image as recognizable at the Mona Lisa.
