what have we here?

From theBible moralisée - anything odd about the motif inside the geometer's compass? Fist tap Dale.

Dude, I've been thinking about this for about a week now and I still don't know what you're hinting at.
A tomb? A womb? A Mushroom? What?

lol, in a lower resolution version of this image, Dale thought he saw something vaguely fractal. (the uncreated darkness)

At the higher resolution I was able to find, not so much....,

I was curious what others might see in what is plainly an unusual and/or unusually stylized image?

On a somewhat closely related note, there was a famous 1999 April Fools Day hoax describing a well-formed mandelbrot figure in a 12th century illustration, as well.

- as this is a topic of keen interest to me ("inexplicable" ancient knowledge sets) - I was curious to know if anyone else was curious to know and would get drawn in to what they thought they were seeing.
