An ape putes on a boot. From the Bestiaire d'Amour: "Thus is the monkey caught; he always wants to do what he has seen done. The hunter puts on and takes off boots in the monkey's presence and then leaves them. The monkey comes and tries to do the same and is caught. So to love is to be clothed with love and imprisoned by it". Bodleian Library, MS. Douce 308, Folio 89v
