Peasant weddingscarf Size: 160x40 cm
The apparent “snapshot” was carefully composed by Bruegel. Without any allegoric meaning the composition shows a realistic Flemish peasants wedding. In front of a green wall hanging with a paper crown above you can see the bride. According to contemporary Flemish custom the groom did not attend at the wedding table.
