Alba Bible, Moses with Tablets of the Law (1422-30)
Moses might as well be an inmate in this illumination; he wears a striped robed, and his head peers out from behind two enormous Tablets, each of which is nearly as tall as he is. No doubt, he is bench pressing more than five times his own body weight. Beneath the mountain, seven figures cower in fear (and in prayer) with good reason; when the rocks drop, they’re liable to take out Moses and all of the assembled figures.
