  1. I can’t help but wonder what the heck the illuminator was eating/drinking/inhaling (whether by accident or not) to come up with such a little beastie. Was it pointed at a comment that someone made about someone else or something? Was it commentary on some figure of local or greater renown or something that just crept out of a nightmare?

  2. Super!!

  3. heavens…! the artist musta been smoking his sour socks…that or horribly mad at someone superior!

  4. He looks slightly fed up about the whole thing too.

  5. The medieval mind is really rather disturbing, isn’t it… Positively bewildering!
