Illustration for article titled Behold, the divine baby walker of Jesus Christ

Here's a new relic for all you amateur Indiana Joneses to instigate Nepalese bar brawls over. Explains the University of California of this odd 1440 tableau, it's "from the Book of Hours of Catherine of Clèves, containing the prayers and litanies of the Mass in Latin, decorated with 157 lavishly colored and gilded illuminations by the Dutch artist, the Clèves Master."


But can you combine the sacred baby walker Voltron style with the Spear of Destiny and the Holy Grail to build a prayer-powered F-15? That is the real question. For more Biblical beings wielding improbably earthly objects, see a demon with a gun from 1489. [Via Retronaut]
