The flock



An Egyptian shepherd carries his deer.

The image pays homage to the French painter and archaeologist Émile Prisse d'Avennes (1807-1879).

Tell me, you whom I love so well;

Where do you pasture your sheep?

Where do you rest them at noon?

Let me not be as one who strays

Beside the flocks of your fellows.

If you do not know, O fairest of women,

Go follow the tracks of the sheep,

And graze your kids by the tents of the shepherds.

Chapter 1:7-8
