David spares Saul

[Double-picture scene: will take longer to load]
David frees Keilah David leaves Keilah David spares Saul
David and his army slay the Philistines at the city of Keilah.  Details show:  1 -first example of detailing on a period saddle.  2 -three great views of the Maciejowski Helm3 -a dagger with a floral pommel and down-turned crossguard.  4 -single-hand sword with an unusually shaped pommel with a triangular engraving and a flared crossguard.  5 -single-hand sword with round pommel and flared crossguard.  6 -single-hand sword with round pommel which has an off-center disc and a flared crossguard.  7 -single-hand sword with a classic cruciform-style hilt and leather-wrapped grip.  8 -clear view of a Norman nasal-helm 9 -round battle shield called a buckler/roundel/rondel.  10 -clear view of the attachment of a scabbard to a sword-belt11 -Not pointing out any particular weapon, armour or garb; rather, the focal point here is the nature of medieval martial arts and battle: the knight on the right (wearing the Norman nasal-helm) has quite probably lost his weaponry and is grappling with the knight on the left (wearing the Maciejowski Helm) in a probable attempt to wrestle the latter from his horse.  Wrestling was as much a part of medieval swordsmanship as was the wielding of the sword itself.  Unfortunately, the former knight receives a presumably fatal dagger wound to the temple in the process.  12 -Again, not pointing out any weapon, armour or garb; the focal point here is the incredibly gruesome nature of battle on the medieval battlefield...On the left and right can be seen a decapitated head (still wearing the Norman nasal-helm); on both the left and right are severed arms (demonstrating that a powerful and sharp blow from a sword can slice through chainmaille defenses), as well as a fully-armoured head split nearly in two (near-right side). David and his army leave Keilah to avoid capture by Saul.  Details show:  1 -fantastic artistic detail by the artisan of this scene, showing a beautiful dappled stallion.  2 -superbly clear view of a saddle-stirrup and the spurs on the ankle of the knight3 -a horse's bridle with ornate metal-work hardware.  4 -heater shield with heraldic markings.  5 -classic cruciform-style hilt of a single-hand sword 6 -good view of the construction of a period saddle shows the high, curved saddle designed to help keep a knight on his horse. David slices off a piece of Saul's cloak, demonstrating that he could have slain him, but did not.  Details show:  1 -a saddle-stirrup and the spurs on the ankle of the knight, as well as period footwear with an open top.  2 -a metal disc commonly used to link the ends of reins together to prevent their falling from reach.   3 a metal disc commonly used to link the ends of reins together to prevent their falling from reach.  4 -a horse's bridle with metal hardware.  5 -three pole-weapons: two spears on the right, and a Glaive on the left.  6 -cruciform-style single-hand sword 7 -single-hand sword with both an ornate pommel and an ornate crossguard.  8 -a royal crown9 -a royal crown10 -a knight's belt.
