I've painted the bal of the burning men after the true story of a medieval tragedy. The bal was also called the Bal of Wild Men. It was organized by the King Charles VI. A fire killed most of the nobility.

On trouve encore des charivaris ( surtout pendant les carnavals) dans de nombreux pays notamment germaniques.
The bal was probably a charivari, a kind of carnival in which people wear wild men, witches, devils costumes and do a lot of noises with hijacked tools.
There are still charivaris ( almost during carnivals ) in several countries, mostly germanic ones.
