A drollery is a sketch often found in the margins of a medieval illuminated script, skilfully crafted by the professional copyist in order to relieve the boredom of the repetitive task at hand.
These doodles often depicted mythologised animals used in a playful way to subtly mock the content in the text. In these drawings, the artist attempts to capture the flavour of decoration, draftsmanship and use of animal imagery as a vehicle to critique contemporary life.
