Why have 218 children taken over a medieval town? A mischievous experience in Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s intriguing painting Children’s Games.
In 1560, Bruegel the Elder produced this puzzling painting of 218 children who have literally taken over a medieval town. They are playing peculiar games, there are no adults in sight and one of the children is taunting you to step in and play hide-and-seek.
That’s when the painting becomes your playground. Can you find the 218 imps before time runs out?
