This week’s puzzle is Edward Hicks’s bucolic Peaceable Kingdom.


A child in a white dress and red sash, surrounded by a variety of animals including a lion, bull, lamb, goat, fox, and leopard. Behind the child is a forest, and to the left of the image, down a hill from the main group, is a large crowd of men in 18th-century clothing. They hold a banner which reads "peace on Earth and good will to men." The banner snakes away into the background, held by men atop a hill, then continues up into the clouds.
