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.

- Original for Victoria Alcon de Castille's Dragons Bowle-

San Marino, Huntington Library, HM 60 f. 123 (Sappho). Epistres d’Ovide, trans. Octavien de Saint Gelais, 1497.
