St. Dorothy - Master of the Rottal Epitaph, c. 1500.
Old Gallery of the LandesmuseumJoanneum, Graz

This appears to be two stuffed rolls covered in beads (gold and white, glass and pearl...amber?) with what appears to be leather "thong" trimmed with pearls at the bottom and between the two rolls.I particularly like the two differnet stripe patterns on this one, very nice. I hope to attempt this soon. maybe not in the same colors, but everything else.
