Sibry's Coral Branch by Merwenna Sibry's Coral Branch by Merwenna
Done for King's Assessments 2013. Based on the Mira Calligraphae Monumenta (Flemish and Hungarian, Austria, 1561- 1562 and about 1591 - 1596). This is the first time I've done a whole scroll based on that manuscript all by myself! Woo!

This is an Award of Arms and kingdom level Arts & Sciences award for my awesome knotwork-making scribal friend Sibryyyy... she likes dragons. And her last name is Thorne. So I turned one of the little lizards in the manuscript into a dragon, and I chose a flower that wasn't in the manuscript but has thorns - bouganvilla (technically they start out being thorny and then they become flower stems) - and stuck a kiwi fruit on there in lieu of my usual makers mark, which is a kiwi *bird*. Sibry does so many awesome arty things and then gives them all away, so I was super happy to be able to do her award. :D
