Initial "A" painted in red and showing two figures kneeling in prayer with hands and faces raised towards the Holy Dove at the top of the initial; within a gold frame.Size of initial: 75 x 74mm. On verso, square musical notation.
A 14th century initial which appears to be painted in 13th century style, and so may be from a provincial centre, although the flat sharp foliage is typical of Bolognese illumination. The inital has features typical of many areas of northern Italy, and so it is difficult to assign the it to a particular area.
