Commentary: Snow 2007: "The 'ome mui feo' described and depicted is CSM 47 is set within a long classical and vernacular tradition of demons/wild men representing man's baser nature. Whether his function in the poem and the miniature is meant merely to inspire terror or more completely to fulfil a symbolic or theological role is a question asked but not resolved."
