Renaissance art - what is a "bierhead" ?

Jump to last reply

Knowing there is a broad range of expertise on Fodors, can somebody explain this passage to me (Taken from a chapter on Sienese Renaissance art) :

"Pacchia also painted for the same company a bierhead showing a Madonna and Child holding a Goldfinch and the production of such bierheads became common"

I've tried Googling, but keep getting the spelling changed to Beer Head and referrences to ale.
Any help appreciated.
