20 Description Marking the beginning of Psalm 55, a bear head blowing a shofar emerges from a foliate stem in the outer margin. A cock is perched on a leaf set at the center of the bear head. The figures possibly refer to the opening verse and verse 7 which read, למנצח בנגינות; מי יתן לי אבר כיונה, "To the chief Musician on Neginoth"; "Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest." A human head wearing a hooded garment is set vertically within a foliate stem between the second and third text columns. An overturned shofar with a leaf emerging from its end, extends from beneath the figure's chin into the adjacent text column. The figure marks the beginning of Psalm 56.
