Bellifortis – Queen of Sheba, 122r

The Queen of Sheba. Although paint damage has obscured her face a little, she is actually quite lovely– see the “all sizes” for a better view. Most scans are so poor that they only show her eyes, and that’s not true to the manuscript at all. circa 1400, YES 1400!

Sunset on the Terrace

One day, a beautiful noblewoman, with dark silver in hair, saw an angel guiding a craftsman outside her terrace.
