And yet the artist still thought it was important to add a bowl of random fruit on the table.

Christian religious symbols in painting are usually this strange for us, but they were common in those times. For example, there are tons of paintings of saints being breast fed by Mary.

ok this is a nutty explanation but it`s all i could find on the web:

"There are two diffrent interpretations concerning this painting. The most common is describing the painting as satirical, or as a criticism of wild life in monasteries. The other interpretation is signifying this painting with the title Miracle of Haarlem. According to a legend, a nun from Haarlem was condemned for giving a birth to a child. The motherhood should be proved by pressing her breasts, and if milk came out she would be judged. But a miracle happened, and wine came from her breasts, which was taken as a proof of innocence."

No, actually that was OK. It was one of the early church fathers, Anselm maybe, who said that the clergy could boob fondle nuns as long as they had no ill intent.

Seriously, I`ll look it up, but I read that recently.
