what is this … toy? … that this kid is pulling after himself in this painting?:

medieval toy

he seems to have a ball loaded on to it — or in it. is it a kind-of a toy cart just without wheels? or do you think it’s some sort of basket thing for playing a lacrosse-like ball game?

these two kids are part of a larger medieval painting that’s on the cover of a book titled Medieval Families, but i haven’t figured out what the title of the painting is.

this slightly naughty little boy also appears to be pulling his sister’s hair. some human (primate) behaviors seem to be pretty universal across both space and time! (~_^)
