Throwback Thursday: My 2004 Manesse Codex Inspired Scroll Illumination


I love the Manesse Codex illuminationsThe heraldry and style are so inspiring. 

I wanted to have these painted so much, they are the reason I learned illumination in the first place.

This "Throwback Thursday" I'm sharing my scroll illumination inspired by it. (See the original page by clicking here.)
