margin of possibilities
I was reading this paper from the farm shop today and noticed a small article about an Italian medieval manuscript, where a 14th-15th Century child had drawn in the margins.
The University of York has been getting child psychologists to help identify the picture which they say could be a human figure and cow or horse.
Bananas, I say (or more likely banane), it's obvious to me that the item on the right is a horse in chain mail armour and that the item on the left is the knight, with one of those squared off suits of armour.
The way the knight is smiling and has big eyes, I'd say it was the child artist's father, too.
