jugglers, clowns and acrobats

Hi, friends!
Yesterday I realized that I really want to complement our range of medieval urban residents. Perhaps this is due to the upcoming holidays (I love New Year) this idea we discussed a little bit and it sounded to you. (Andreas :"I like the Idea of a Travelinng Circus ")
It will be street actors: jugglers, clowns and acrobats. Not so many pictures on this topic are authentic. Perhaps what I'll do is just to illustrate my imagination, to my stories that I come up constantly ... But it would be nice if you take part in this! Any ideas are welcome!

btw. for all kind of ideas, here is an old bible, which were made for the crusaders, only with pictures:

46 Pictures

the bible was made around the year 1245 and you'll find pictures like that:

nice!!!!

btw. now I remeber a little detail, these kind of "workers" often wear some little bells (jingle bells?) around their ankles. Only nice to know (or maybe you are such kind of wired, you try this, I think )

Jesters had bells for sure but I think the bells on the ankles comes from shakespear´s time..an attempt to make fun of the order of the garter.(but I´m not 100% sure)
Alex´s fig could be a "fool"
He looks like Bosch´s fool (top right)

or a Buffor (Buffoon/Fool)..the right hand fig

Jesters




I cannot find any pictures in my collection (I like clowns ) of clowns/Jesters or fools with ankle bells until the 17th cent.

Paul - again a good idea, my friend! Steven - I did as you said - about the bells. Now that the manufacturer will be casting blame me for the small details - I will say is that you made ​​me do it ...
Also the second actor joyful as soon New Year and my (and our) friend - a birthday today!
