Nuns in a wheelbarrow

Roman d’Alexandre, Tournai 1338-1344 (Bodleian Library, MS. Bodl. 264, fol. 22r)

Sent by Wendy Neathery-Wise, who found it here: discarding images (on facebook)

I put "France" even though the book is in England, and even though Tournai isn't in France anymore. So I'll add England, too.
