Summary

Bas-de-page scene of a boar standing between two trees, with decorated letters and a partial bar border. Image taken from f. 15 of Book of Hours, Use of Sarum ('The Taymouth Hours'). Written in Latin and French.

In medieval illuminated manuscripts, bas-de-page scenes are unframed, sometimes whimsical images that appear below the written text and may or may not refer to it.
