(active 1410s in Paris)

Livre des Merveilles du Monde

Manuscript (Ms. français 2810)
Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris

The bulk of the miniatures in this 15th-century French codex was created by the Boucicaut Master, while the Bedford Master and several other anonymous illuminators completed a smaller group of miniatures.

This miniature describes men with heads in their chests, and even in their backs.
