This miniature marks the beginning of the Canticle of Moses to the Sons of Israel.
The style of illumination in this manuscript is typical of what is known as the "Golden Age" of Flemish illumination, a period that extended from ca. 1470 to about ca. 1560. This miniature was painted by the anonymous Master of Edward IV who was named after a manuscript he illuminated for the English king Edward IV.
Two identifiable artists worked on this manuscript: the Psalm illustrations are by a follower of Masters of the Golden Fleece, and the Canticle illustrations are by the Master of Edward IV.
