Waterford Museum of Treasures Images

A close up of the two illustrations done for Waterford Museum of Treasure a few months back. Originally they were designed to be displayed at the bottom of heritage signage beside each other. It was later decided that in the final boards that the archer was displayed differently when the signs went up beside Reginalds tower in Waterford but here they are together.

The one of the left is the prow of a Viking ship, based on the Viking longship reconstruction at Reginalds tower. And the archer to the right is a later medieval archer, his bow is based on display in the Waterford Medieval museum and is the only excavated unbroken medieval bow found in Ireland and Britain. Below is how they were eventually displayed along with 2 other illustrations I did for the boards
