Summary

Bas-de-page scene of the serra, a winged sea monster (with the body of a four-legged animal), with a decorated initial 'D'(omine). Image taken from f. 88v 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.
