Back

Leo, the lion; men and a woman harvesting corn interspersed with poppies in a summer landscape with a farmhouse in the background. They are using short-handled scythes in contrast to the long-handled scythes used for cutting the grass in June. The harvest of corn is a widespread subject for this month,but occasionally this subject is used for August.Many July illustrations show the binding of the corn into sheaves, which is not shown in the Isabella Breviary.
