Gabrielle Titan Scroll

My Very Good Friend Kim gave me this as a present. Can You Believe THAT!!! He is truly one of the BEST guys I know!!! He has an exceptionally big Heart and I LOVE that about him. I want to one day go to New Zealand so that I can finally meet this Great Guy and Wonderful Friend that has been brought into my life by the Fates!!!

This is possibly the scroll that was used by Gabrielle in Xena Season 1 episode "The Titans" and what is cool is that it is also featured in the DVD title page which I have included a screen cap of along with an actual screen grab from the episode.The scroll ends are missing so I am guessing something happened to them but it is a Beautiful piece and HUGE!!!! It feels like it is made out of very thin animal hyde and the 3 loops at each end of the scroll is thick but soft leather pieces. The pictures on the scroll are truly amazing. There is some water damage to the writing but it is still visible. This is one of my favorite pieces!!! It holds a special place in my heart as does the Wonderful Man who blessed me with this Treasure!!! Many hugs to you Kim!!! :-)

A Solstice Carol Parchment

Here is a Beautiful piece of Parchment from Xena season 2 episode "A Solstice Carol". It is one of the orders from King Silvis that Senticles has to write out. Xena catches Senticles changing the orders to do some good for the people King Silvis sentenced and she holds one as you can see in the screen cap. It is very detailed with a Celtic symbol boarder, Fabulous Roman Calligraphy writing and a real red wax seal on the bottom with two small gold pieces of fabric to give it a special touch!!! I was given this Awesome piece as a gift from my Propaholic Buddy Morgan. This made me so happy I was in tears!!! Thanks again my Good Friend!! :-)

Beautiful Scroll

This piece is a Real work of art. This scroll is from a friend in New Zealand which I was able to acquire. Scrolls were always one thing that I really wanted to have in my collection and now I have fulfilled that dream. The craftsmanship always fascinated me with how much went into creating them and this one proves that!!! This scroll is about 20-25 inches in length from end to end. It has very detailed scroll ends that are made of resin and painted gold. The paper is a cloth type of parchment paper so as to look as authentic as possible. It has really nice hand written letters/symbols and the shell that is at the bottom has a small round flat piece of Paua Shell on it. This is truly a nice piece!!! I have not found it in an episode but I know I will!!

Virgil's Scroll

Here is one of my newly purchased items. This is the scroll Virgil is writing his epic poem on in Xena Season 5 episode "Livia" when Gabrielle, Joxer and Virgil are in jail. Many thanks to my good friend Morgan for letting me know what episode it was from. I was able to acquire this Beautiful scroll from a friend in New Zealand. The land I want to call my home!!! Scrolls are something that I have always wanted to own in my collection and thanks to my friend I now have 2. This scroll is a little over 9 feet 4 inches in length and is made up of the same page just glued together. It has resin knobs on all 4 ends that are painted silver and a small amount of twine wrapped around at the ends. This is a real treasure for me to have this. Simply beautiful!!!
