Italian Order of Defence scroll. 


Based on an indulgence dated 1595 given by Pope Clement VIII held by the Bourbon family archives. Done June of 2015. 

Gouache on Bristol, written with a dip pen.  Text provided by kingdom scribe. Italic hand. 

I swapped out the religious iconography with the badge orthe Order  and the populace badges of An Tir and its Principalities at the time, Summits, Avacal and Tir Righ. Tir Righ is at the top since the recipient is in Tir Righ. 

I figured out a way to layout the skeleton of the vine work and paint it in as I went. Pleased with that. 


Got to watch the pendant seal being added, and now want to use them more.
