Monday Mural

The Drenthe Museum in Assen has an old and modern part. This is a tile tableau in the basement of the old part. I don't know exactly how old it is, but the text is in old Dutch language.
I will try to translate, it is an expression of the farmer how happy he is living here with his land and his cattle and to live here the life just as his father Jacob did.

  3. That is a wonderful tile mural. It does look old. Perhaps 18th or 19th Century?

  5. Mooi dat dit soort tegeltableaus bewaard zijn gebleven. Ben ook wel benieuwd hoe oud het werkelijk is.
