> Cardinal Wolsey (1532), and the Election of Francis I to the Order of the
> Garter (1527), and documents of deed to Beaulieu Abbey (1528). The helm is
> styled after a woodcut Albrecht Durer (1520), and the Pelican is after

> The third is an award scroll for the Order of the Pelican, based on several
> Flemish mss of the early 16th century (including the Hastings Hours, 1502)
> in the distinctive Ghent-Bruges style of illumination, depicting
> illusionistic flowers and insects on a liquid gold background. Each of the
> flowers was chosen for it's symbolic meaning according to popular period
> practice referring to the Flemish spiritual movement called devotio
> moderna. The mss measures 15.3 cm x 10.5 cm; the letters are 3mm high.
> These mss were done on archival quality imitation vellum (real vellum is
> currently unobtainable in Australia), written with carbon ink and quills,
> illuminated with 23 carat gold leaf and period mineral pigments, basically
