Nebuchadnezzar's Ymage

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.
