Fascinating Find at the Goodwill

Often, I'm a sucker for picking up random crap that someone's kid made because I feel like those things are so precious and deserve to be loved.  That's what I thought I was doing today...but as I delve a bit further, I'm just not sure.

I remember when I was a child we did some sort of "family crest" project in art class.  This very well could be what this is...but again, I'm putting this out into the universe hoping that someone will see it and help me out.

Either way, let's go ahead and show you what I'm talking about...





At first glance, I thought it was a cute art project (and I'm still pretty sure that's what it is); however, after a little cuddling up with my buddy Google, the plot thickens a bit.  Additionally, once I started actually looking at the artwork (the dragon's face and proportions, etc.) it looked a bit more intricate than a kid's art project.

When I started researching, I kept coming up with pages in Spanish (thank God for Google Translate)...eventually I typed in all of the words on the piece and came up with something definitive that contained it ALL; however, this is only ONE website out in the world of Al Gore's internet which details the Escalante family crest during the 1500's. 

So I have sent photos off to a few folks and anxiously await any answer that will tell me anything about this!

Stay Tuned!
