January in the Great Hours of Anne of Brittany

Depicted in the star-strewn, upper section of the painting, isolated by cumuli of clouds representing the division between the heavenly and earthly worlds, is the sign of Aquarius as a reclining, as a naked child boy grasping the handles of two jugs and pouring out the vast amount of blue water that gives the constellation its meaning.
