Matthew of Paris 1250 Miniature      Matthew of Paris Medieval Sword Scabbard

This scabbard build is my own recreation of the scabbard seen in the famous miniature art by Matthew Paris (or Matthew of Paris), in the approximate year of 1250 AD. In observation of his works, a common trait I noted is he used minimal colors, and often colored multiple objects the same color, even though they likely would have been different. Matthew also liked to use the color green, more so than other colors. Matthew's technique is unique, skillful, and quite recognizable. However, for this build I opted for a more simple color combination of browns. Another note is; the belt orientation in Matthews miniature (coming off the backside) is reversed from my own. Originally I attempted a mock-up of said orientation but the scabbard went more vertical and wanted to tilt the other way more-so than it should. I reversed the arrangement and the angle of hang was then exactly where it should be.
