Artist's Description

Kees a lovely girl, tired of wild games and still perfectly playing her role as Medieval child and model.
She is resting in the shade of her parent’s pavillion it’s pretty warm that day.

Dad is a knight and fighting in the tournament, Mum is a fine noble lady of the house and reigns the pavillion during the festival.
Happy to know this friendly family who are all great reenactment players.

(Beertje je dochter is een lieve meid en pracht fotomodel!)

Medieval childhood was a rich and varied state, since children varied from one another as much as adults did. It differed chiefly from modern western society in its mortality and in the fact that many young people started serious work at an earlier age. Most of what we associate with childhood, however, existed for children in the middle ages: upbringing at home, play, special treatment according to age, and training for adult life and work.
