Abstract

This picture is an energetic protest of the hunted against the hunters, regardless of their standing and reputation. The 'Unknown German Master' has hares roasting a hunter, who is skewered over a spit. A couple at left are hanging a nobleman or landowner, while it is any guess on what will happen to the monk in the middle. He does not look happy! Many of these methods of execution were used on peasants during the 1525 uprising.
