Bob's custom and historically made pincel arrived about two weeks ago. This piece is absolutely stunning. Jorge out did himself. This little symbolic flag of the 10th company of the ordinances, though speculative, is probably one of the most accurate flags of it's type out there. A few modernisms such as fabric dye and some modern pigment (historic ones were highly toxic) are the only things that keep this from being 100%.
The saint image is speculative but based on an extant 15th century Flemish image of St. Julian the Hospitaller and works very well. This image of St. Julian in the boat with his wife and a traveler was chosen as we did not want to be mistaken for another company of the ordinance with St. Eustace as the hunter.
I will post pictures shortly.
