Huge and Unusual Scroll

Pelican scroll, painted tapestry, based on (drawing) by Alessandro Allori, Florence, 1535-1607,(drawing and cartoon) by Michelangelo Cinganelli, Florence, 1635, (textile) by Guasparri Papini, Florence, 1588-1621. Portiera with arms of the Medici and Austria. Changed to the arms of Barbara Giomaria di Roberto with ASpike@ supporters. Corner designs changed to AGolden Dolphin@, A Order of St. Barbara@, AOrder of Job@ and ABurdened Tiger@ badges. Done by Master Tristan Alexander, July A.S. XLI.  This is about 4 feet by 5 feet, painted on raw canvas. I think it is the largest scroll ever done for the kingdom.
