Hastle drawing

This drawing was discovered in the remains of an ancient library in the French countryside. Archaeologists suspect that it was drawn by an inebriated monk sometime in the early 16th century. Many questions remain: was it called a “Hastle” because it resembles a horse and a castle? Does it depict a design concept or the fancy of the artist? How did someone in 16th century France find lined paper? Perhaps, we’ll never know.
