This miniature depicts the preparation for Passover. In the upper register, a man distributes unleavened bread (matzot). In the lower register, two women clean the house for the Seder dinner while a father and son look for any leaven left in the house.

The image comes from the "Sister Haggadah", a manuscript made in 14th Century CE Barcelona, Spain. The manuscript is now part of the collection of the British Library in London, UK.
