My contribution to Proverbmonday 12 January 2009 is a photo of a small part (1/25) of the famous Pieter Bruegel painting "The Dutch Proverbs". The complete painting pictures over 120 proverbs and sayings, and was shown earlier: http://www.fotothing.com/senna3/photo/34b4c53a96afe870d7007b97d510f76c/start=37 .

In the above picture one may recognize for example:
"Ongeleide eiers zijn onzekere kiekens" meaning something like "One should not worry unnecessarily" and "De kat de bel aanbinden" = "Bell the cat" meaning "Disclosing a secret"
