When the visitors to the Knights Templar convention arrived at New Orleans, La., recently, they were greeted by the sight of a giant figure of a mounted Templar of the Middle Ages, the statue being supported on an arch across one of the principal streets. The figure was made of papier-mache and was completed in less than 30 days by workers of the city who have developed a high degree of speed and skill through making the floats for the Mardi Gras carnival. The figure of the armored knight on the white charger stood some 55 feet above the street.

One of Rembrandt’s finest works is strangely mirrored/mocked in this odd encounter of two unlikely hugging animals. I can totally see a Disney adaptation of the gospel parable.
