Based on a "Biblia pauperum" - Bible of the poor - from the northern Netherlands c. 1405. King's MS 5, f.20, to be specific.
This is made for a superspecialawesome member of my SCA household, Wenllyan. She got her AoA several years ago, but she only ever got a weird promissory sort of situation going on. I hadn't gotten a chance to make her a scroll yet, so I offered to do this one.
The first panel represents her starting off in the SCA in the Barony of Black Diamond, when she was a college student at VT (second tiny Burruss Hall castle I have painted... hmmm trend). The second is of her serving by sewing Viking apron dresses for several members of the barony. It also has a banner on the wall behind her depicting the badges of the offices she has held within the barony. The third panel shows her waterbearing, which she often does at events. The heavy fighter is supposed to be her husband, Philp, and behind them is the "Tudor trailer" that they camp in.
The four folks around the scrolly bits in the middle are the other four "grown up" members of our household. Aneira and Grettir- the heads of the household - are up top, and Cerball and Talia on the bottom. None of them look like who they are.
Yay colorful calligraphy! Yay picture book! Boo tiny faces that don't look like the people they are supposed to be portraits of!
