Guyart des Moulins, Bible historiale.

Bibliothèque de l’Arsenal, Ms-5212 réserve, fol. 1r.

First page of a Bible translated into French.

What is this image? There is a banderole just left of the image saying it is the 5 books of the Law of Moses. In this scene, Moses receives the Law and a vision of the Creation. Unusual iconography.
