Very impressive work, (same goes for the landsnecht helmet) I'm still trying to figure out, how did you bend the wood like that?

Hmmm not completely understanding you... so it's thin plywood and it was pressed that way? Did you have to steam it or simply wet it? Did you do the artwork yourself as well? What does it say around the edges of the pavise?

Not to worry Stanislav despite the fact that some of my ancestors came from your part of the world your English is FAR better then my Czech. I think I understand you now. Happy Did you do the artwork on the pavise yourself as well? How did you get into (start doing) this sort of thing?

Stanislav,
Your friend is quite the artist! Beautiful work. I could swear I've seen a similar medieval pavisse before... did he base it off an original piece?
