Christ in the Temple from BL Royal 2 B VII, f. 151

description

Summary

Miniature of Christ in the Temple speaking to the doctors, with the Virgin and Joseph behind, and six niches with prophets, accompanying the text of Psalm 52, with a bas-de-page scene of a mounted man and two mounted women hawking, with a man on foot holding a lure, and a hawk attacking a duck. Image taken from f. 151 of Psalter ('The Queen Mary Psalter'). Written in Latin, with French image captions.

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.
