Saint Catherine Scabbard

This scabbard is made for an Albion Talhoffer. It is poplar wrapped in linen and glue, and then wrapped again in leather and dyed red.

The design features Saint Catherine of Alexandria. It is loosely based on an anonymous German woodcut, circa 1470-80, although the image was modified here to fit the different medium.
