A Prayer for the Care of Children
Illuminated manuscript print
10 x 12 & 5/8 inches

Ms. Wilds writes, "illustrating the words 'joy and care of children,' the miniature shows a scene in the daily life of a medieval family, containing symbols of study, music, and play shared by family members of all ages."
