The miraculous birth of Gargantua from his mother's ear

The miraculous birth of Gargantua is the result of an 11-month pregnancy. The labor is so difficult, his mother threatens to castrate his father Lord Grangousier.

By this inconvenient the cotyledons of her matrix were presently loosed, through which the child sprang up and leaped, and so, entering into the hollow vein, did climb by the diaphragm even above her shoulders, where the vein divides itself into two, and from thence taking his way towards the left side, issued forth at her left ear.
