I think the backstories of some of my finished pieces are interesting in themselves, so I decided to share them on my studio blog.
Perfect for Halloween, or any time you’re feeling a tad bit ghoulish, this necklace features artwork from the oddly eerie Book of Miracles, published in Augsburg in 1552, and just recently rediscovered.
The Book of Miracles is composed of 169 large watercolor and gouache illustrations chronicalling miraculous, bizarre, and legendary occurrences from biblical times to the present times of the author.
Here, featured on this pendant, is the plate Dragons Over Bohemia. According to the accompanying text, Dragons, both large and small were observed flying, en masse over Bohemia in 1533. This phenomenon is reported to have lasted several days.
