- Christ carrying the cross
- The iconography of this miniature suggests that it may have once marked the beginning of Sext of the Hours of the Cross in a book of hours. The image of Christ carrying the Cross on the way to Calvary typically begins this hour of the office. The miniature was painted in the style of Willem Vrelant, one of the most influential illuminators working in Bruges during the third quarter of the fifteenth century. It is by the same hand and of the same dimensions as Lewis E M 10:12, indicating that these two cuttings once belonged to the same manuscript.
- This cutting can be dated to ca. 1480.
- This is the reverse of a cutting with a miniature from a book of hours.
