Excalibur

ExcaliburMy vision of Excalibur, the magical sword wielded by the legendary King Arthur himself.

Seriously speaking, it’s just some generic West African sword I doodled. The blade design comes from the Benin Empire (actually located in modern Nigeria), but the icon in the middle is a Ghanaian adrinkra symbol for strength.

As to what a West African sword design would have to do with Arthurian legend, I’ll just say it’s related to a plot idea I cooked up recently.
