The painting depicts literal illustrations of more than 100 Dutch proverbs.
Bruegel’s work illustrates the absurdity, wickedness, and foolishness of people.
The son of the painter made 16 copies of the painting with minor differences from the original.
While Bruegel had already painted several minor paintings about proverbs, this was the first large-scale painting on the subject.
