      Breugel's The Fight Between Carnival and Lent (1559) presents the contrasts between worldly pleasures - on the left side of the painting is an inn - and spiritual life - on the right the church. In between is a gallery of revelers and pious people, although the revelers definitely outnumber the latter.
