This miniature depicting a scene from the childhood of Christ marked the Hour of None in the Office of the Virgin. The existence of many miniatures from this period with the same basic composition indicates that it was painted using a pattern-sheet. Such short-cuts facilitated production as demand for books of hours increased.
