Arundel 83 f. 128v Tree of Vices
Tree of Vices
Description: Miniature of the Tree of Vices, from the De Lisle Psalter (Arundel 83 II). The Tree grows from the Original Sin of Adam and Eve, into seven branches of circular clusters, each representing one of the seven vices and its seven subsidiaries; birds, owls, and moths perch in the braches. At the bottom left of the Tree sits a rich miser, holding a stack of gold coins, with a devil perched on his back; at the lower right is a proud peasant with a devil sitting before him. 
Origin: England, S. E. (London?) 
Attribution: Madonna Master and Third Artist
