Description from www.metmuseum.org:
”The evangelists write their Gospels here with the aid of their characteristic
symbols. An ox literally open’s Luke’s eyes to receive divine inspiration, while Mark’s lion seems to be speaking to the author. This plaque, which probably was affixed to the cover of an Ottonian Gospel book, now decorates the cover of a late fifteenth-century Gospel lectionary.”
