This haunting illustration depicts the ominous "ymage" (statue) that
appears in Nebuchadnezzar's dream (narrated in the Prologue of
"Confessio Amantis"). This particular image is from Columbia University, Plimpton MS
265, fol. 1v, but we see this episode illustrated in other Gower
manuscripts as well.
