ROB JAN'S "FANTASTIQUE" BADGE CLOAK #1 COSTUME PICTURE #4
This view is a detail from one of the badge cloaks panels. Folks have asked me what criteria I used for selection of the badges. Well now,that's a sad story, and kind of reminds me of what happens when you allow cats to take liberties with your personal space! Give 'em an inch and before you know it they're soon sitting on two velvet cushions in the best, warmest spot in the house sipping Mouse Juleps and dictating their memoirs! It began with badges, logos and insignia from genre television shows or movies that I really liked, then spread to graphics I whipped up myself based on favourite books and stories, and in the finally phase grew to incorporate other interesting fictional and non fictional designs from general pop culture whether I liked them personally or not. Such is life, or art at least. One thing I was particular about. Since the cloak does function as a kind of Klingon/Predator (movie) trophy cloak I started out with the intention of not including any contemporary military badges, 'cos I figured that would be just plain rude, not in line with the fictional theme of the artwork, and also potentially dangerous! Genre designers often being history buffs though some of the badges are based on on real life graphics. Then there were insignia that were plain lifted from real life and used in shows and movies without modification....ah well, I tried! Additionally, if I were to acknowledge all the sources I've used it would take forever and besides, I couldn't recall 'em all! If anyone specifically wants acknowledgement I'll be happy to oblige, but in the meantime will fall back on the old saw, "If you steal from one source it's plagarism, if you steal from many it's research!"

The Strickland Brooch
Anglo-Saxon, mid-9th century AD
Animals large and small
The history of this elaborate silver disc brooch is almost unknown. It is named after the Strickland family of Yorkshire, and may well have belonged to Sir William Strickland, a keen collector of antiquities in the nineteenth century. The brooch was bought by an American buyer at auction in 1949 but it was refused an export licence and was then purchased by The British Museum.
An outstanding feature of the brooch is the extensive use of gold in its decoration, used at a time when it was scarce and highly prized. Plain gold panels enrich a lively pattern of dog-like animals (complete with collars!) deeply carved into the silver to form an openwork effect. These animals fill a quatrefoil where the lobes are divided by animal heads seen from above. There are raised bosses behind these heads. The arms of the central cruciform (cross-shaped) motif, with another boss at its centre, terminate with four identical heads towards the edge.
The rich look of the brooch is further enhanced by a number of decorative techniques which clearly show the Anglo-Saxon love of colour and light. A black niello inlay has been used to make the decoration stand out, and blue glass picks out the eyes of the animal heads. Small dots punched into some areas of the curved surface of the brooch gives it a sparkling appearance. This style is typical of fine Anglo-Saxon metalwork of the ninth century. It is called the Trewhiddle Style after a Cornish hoard.
The back of the brooch is undecorated, although attached are the remains of fixings for a pin which is now missing. The silver loop fitted by a rivet to the top of the brooch allows it to be worn as a pendant.
