The second of two Dragon's Bowle Award scrolls

The second of two Dragon's Bowle Award scrolls was for Lord Volker Eisvogel zu Nortorf. As one half of a pair, I worked together with my Laural Mistress Bridget Greywolf.

The original pages are from the Master of Mary of Burgundy, 32-33. Prayer to St. Anthony Abbot.

The first of two Dragon's Bowle Awards

Here is the first of two Dragon's Bowle Awards scolls done in the period from September to December 2014.

The Dragons Bowle Scroll of Lady Victoria Alcon de Castille.
As she has a very late period persona I had some difficulty finding historical examples of awardlike book illumination. Here is what I found and adjusted to the final scroll.
