Bliaut cuff #1 - after Philipp of Swabia's caligae

I have finished the first of the 2 bliaut cuffs based on the band from Philipp of Swabia's caligae. Not much more to say from the previous post, although now you can see the small pattern sections that break up the pair of birds. I also include images 1518 and 1519 from Der Dom zu Speyer ( Bildband), Hans Erich Kubach and Walter Haas, of the front and the reverse of the original band. I also used the information in Des Kaisers letzte Kleider: Neue Forschungen zu den organischen Funden aus der Herschergräbern im Dom zu Speyer when planning this band.
