Charles V Prayer Book Scarf
The iconic elements shown on this head and wrap scarf come from a stunning, colorful, and illuminated manuscript, the earliest known prayer book created for the young Charles V (1500–1558), future Holy Roman emperor.
The first illustration in the book shows Charles’s coat of arms from when he was still living in the Habsburg Netherlands before he became emperor. The book is only 6¾ x 4¾ inches and features a hand-drawn miniature on almost every page with fully decorated borders. Its art is a fascinating example of Flemish culture from the early sixteenth century. The religious iconography and exceptional illuminations in tempera, ink, and gold, include early Renaissance artistic elements linked to the circle of Simon Bening, famous miniaturist, in the Bruges tradition.
