Woman’s Work

During my trip to Paris this past November, I was fortunate to catch a fascinating little gallery show about hygiene in the middle ages.  Check out the print below.  The lady of the house is dealing with a restless child, a cat in heat, and a sickly husband all while trying to knock down a spider’s nest and hold her nose against the stench.  I guess a woman’s work is never done.
