Folio 49

With signs‘.. You shall take in your hand this rod, with which you will perform the signs’ To the left of the initial word ‘With signs. [This is the rod]’. A youth in a short tunic stands and raises Aaron’s flowering staff, described in Numbers 17, 23, in his left hand. Verso In the side margins, facing each other and standing on tendrils sprouting from the initial word panel, are almost mirror-images of wild men, each one holding a club and a shield. Their hirsute bodies are outlined in black without any pigment, their faces painted in a solid flesh tone, and their shields filled with flat yellowish gouache. The peacock at the top of the page is partly painted. The decoration in the initial word panel exemplifies the type employed in this section of the manuscript.
Leaf size is approximately 255 x 190mm (10 x 7.5in)
