Sketch for "The Blind Hessians"

Sketch for a illustration of a Thuringian myth "The blind Hessians"
Legend has it, that one day, as the Hessian knights besieged (my hometown) Mühlhausen and nearly overcame the brave Thuringians - the clever women of Mühlhausen came up with the idea of using stakes and pegs and dress them like soldiers and mercenaries. The Hessians - weakened by the siege and too blind to see the ruse of war - folded up their tents and fled the battlefield.
