Book of Love Pelican

Pelican scroll inspired by pages from King Rene’s Book of Love, specifically Folio 18v and Folio 21v, 15th century, France. Illumination by Master Tristan Alexander, calligraphy by Lady Failenn Chu Inghean Fhaelain .  I think it was 9 x 12, Acrylic, Egg Tempera and Gold leaf on Parchemnt (the skin not the paper). Pitcure 28
(Dame Bell Phoebe while traveling with her page and her Laurel Knight approaches a bridge where she sees a tree full of her accomplishments and then a Pelican Knight appears to join her company!)

  1. Tristan that is gorgeous! It must have taken ages of work to paint! I love the Black Knight.
