wine, women and beasts
the context of this wonderful observation of drunk women's rampant sexual appetite is a discussion in the talmud about how much provision for wine should be stipulated in a woman's ketubah.
4 cups of wine eh ladies is what it takes to really get us going... as my mother asked: what about seder night? (where we are obligated to drink 4 cups, women too). gives chad gadyah a whole different reading.
the lacework is quite detailed, containing drunk women, horses, as well as sexually provocative women. And four glasses of wine. For a sense of scale, I've photographed this on my cutting mat which has a grid of 1cm squares. (the overall dimensions of the doilie are 35cm x 27cm).
