I am really happy with the way this custom painted pavise came out. The client has a German SCA persona and wanted this ornate, yet classic design. The heraldic device depicts a gryphon with a border of ermine spots. The achievements include a helm with a crest, torse and mantling. The motto, in German, “Ehren Sie vor allem” translates to “Honor Above All”. The background is diapered with gold acanthus leaves.
