      Everything great about White culture in this painting.

      What’s with the midget dude in the back, with the two tiny horses? A farmer from Fairyland?

    3. Stronza Says:

      @Thom. Maybe it was Rubens’ way of showing distance (over & above dark colors)? In old paintings, perspective is not perfectly drawn.

      Or maybe those really are little horses and a dwarf tending them.

      Stronza and Thom: I vote for fairies.

      The Faery Faith was very prevalent in Europe during the time of Rubens.

      A certain sort of Faery, the Brownie, would help with the chores. If you look closely, you can see that the little man in indeed brown.
