Medieval Stencils I made in Adobe Illustrator from original architectural carvings of the Middle Ages in Europe....

I am not an expert, but I tried to make them as precise as I could, being a beginner in Illustrator (and a casual user of Photoshop...)

Contact me if you see the need of improvements!

Creating vector art and combining it with history, medieval history is quite addictive. taking inspiration from real architectural objects of that time, drawing the same lines people drew thousand years ago gives me a unique feeling of being aprt of the same family.

A great past-time!

I hope you will enjoy this simple creations.

...and I will add continously more drawings, vector arts I mean!

Obviously, this immediately recognizable drawing originated from the shields used by warriors in the battle and its origin is lost in the beginning of human history.
