Page: f68r1   Title: "Sun over Moon"

The page contains a circular diagram surmounted by a paragraph with 3.5 lines (unit "P").

The diagram consists of a faint circular outline filled with 29 randomly placed stars, each with a label (unit "S").

At the top and bottom of the diagram, just inside the outline, there are two smaller circular medallions.

The top medallion (the Sun) sports a ring of fang-shaped rays.
Inside it is the face of a woman, with short curly hair and
crossed eyes; and three voynichese words (unit "X").

The bottom medallion is framed by a circular band with some text
(unit "Y"). Inside the frame is the face of a man(?), also with
crossed eyes, apparently with short hair and a "frame" beard, both


The two medallions presumably represent the Sun and Moon.
Compare  this diagram with the following one (f68r2), which is visible at the right when the foldout is open.
