Historical & non-historical scabbards.
Tailor-made with a distinct artistic disposition.
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.
