Tobias and his Fish

This is the scene I saw in the Hautpoul Manuscript illumination drawing on the page from The Book of Tobit. This is the actual illustration to that page, the artist used gold leaf for the background.

Tobit Illustration

It is a "T" and the first word is "Tobias". The page is creased at the top - the folded Hautpoul manuscript page. Norman Romanesque style. Marvelous medieval bird.
