The blog of medieval book historian Erik Kwakkel is one of the hidden gems of the internet, which is why I interviewed him 3 weeks ago. He's an expert on manuscripts, which is how he was able to dig up this funny image.
It shows Reynard the Fox, a trickster character in medieval literature, racing Tybalt, the Prince of Cats (who was referenced in Act 2, Scene 4 of Romeo and Juliet). It appears that Tybalt is winning. He turns his head and sticks out his tongue at Reynard in mockery.
