- Hey Everyone,
I am looking for a picture/drawing of a pelican, celtic if possible.
If anyone can point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.

Coldcastle and Gerald of Ipsley, they have a drawing of a Pelican. It
is one of their designs (I believe Bob did the art), adapted from
period art for SCA use.
It is difficult to find early depictions of a Pelican. I was looking
a few years ago and the best I did was 14th c. (though it wasn't a
very thorough search, mainly Google images).
I don't remember if the Celtic Pelican is in Vol I or II of the
Celtic Embroidery books as I am at work and the books are at home.
You can find a citation for the books on the West Kingdom Embroidery
Bibliography. (a great resource!)
