Pieter Bruegel the Elder. The Parable of the Blind.

The Parable of the Blind. In this tragic image Bruegel gives visual expression to Christ’s words about people’s inner blindness to true religion: “they are blind guides, and if one blind man guides another they will both fall into the ditch.” (Matthew 15:14).
