The Dream of Gawain captures the moment in the story of Perceval by Chretien de Troyes, when Gawain must try to stay awake at the Fisher King's castle as the bleeding lance is processed in front of him. Alas, only the purest of knights is able to do this and so Gawain falls into sleep and in the morning the king and all his court have disappeared.
This original linocut print shows the glory of the Grail shining while Gawain slumbers; in this image I have also drawn from Sir Gawain and the Green Knight in applying the golden star to Gawain's jupon; most stories feature him with a griffon.
