Stained glass (24.2 x 13.7 cm.)
France, c.1450

This bird of prey, with his long claw and his hooked beak, is decorated with a cross with four circles. It must be a fragment of an armorial fragment; the bestiary was often used in heraldry. The hawk, for example, was the favorite bird for the medieval aristocracy even if it is not much employed in heraldry of Middles Ages.
