of sport, such as shooting, hunting, fishing and coursing, which he did
with wonderful skill and in the most realistic fashion. This picture is

of sporting scenes, dated 1578
The hunters carry stonebows,
and the rabbits are beening driven from there burrows by smoke and fire.
Purse nets and stop nets may also be seen in use.]
