This manuscript extract, from the British Library, is written in Hebrew (?) and dates from the 1300s in France. I don’t read Hebrew so can’t enlighten anyone about the deeper meanings of this particular piece, but I just love the bold, angular greyhound looking breed of dog, which intense muscle definition!
