Girls by a Stream, by Arthur Rackham.
Infantry Officer’s Sword
- Dated: late 18th-early 19th century
- Culture: British
- Measurements: overall length 103 cm
Featuring a gilt hilt of 1796 type with wire-wrapped grip and vegetal modelling, the sword was probably a private purchase. The earlier heirloom blade is straight and double-edged, with four fullers at either side of the forte. The outer has two heavily gilt, the inner two with repeating geometrical pierced motifs.

Biologists would have you call this thing an Armadillo-Girdled Lizard, Cordylus cataphractus, but I won’t be fooled. This is clearly a baby dragon. They also have this adorable habit of biting their own tails for no discernible reason. Which is adorable until you remember what the ouroboros is, and inevitably conclude that these things are also dark magic.
Magical dragons. It all makes sense.
Dragons are real, no fucks given if you disagree.
