The Chicken's Wedding Panel

The Chicken’s Wedding panel (1660-1667 CE) is an azulejo (glazed ceramic tile) from the 17th century CE. A chicken is conveyed in a carriage that is escorted by a cortege of monkeys playing musical instruments. Singerie (French for “Monkey Trick”) is the name given to a visual image in which fashionably dressed monkeys display human behaviour and it emerged as a distinct genre in the 16th century CE. The panel is on display at the National Tile Museum in Lisbon, Portugal. This image was taken in 2018 CE.
