A MACE used during a Medieval melee tournament.

Before the joust became popular there was the melee tournament.
" – a brutal free-for-all with few rules – designed very much as a preparation for war. "
*It was a fearsome spectacle – in which many hundreds, sometimes thousands of knights clashed in a mass charge between opposing teams with lances lowered. Knights fell to the ground, lances splintered, horses reared.
And the mass mock-battle could be fought over a vast area including woods, hills and rivers." According to:
Dr Tobias Capwell, medieval weapons expert

Digital art

Not really concentrated enough for a new lesson to start in PS so I just played a bit with several layers and techniques in several programmes and on line, a mace wasn’t needed to flatten all layers…….
