St. Mellivora and the Sausage


Badge Awards


Saint Mellivora is an ancient African saint, the roots of which are obscure and poorly documented. He is usually portrayed bearing the Miraculous Sausage, but alas, the story behind it has been lost to the ages, and no one is quite sure what kind of sausage it was, or what exactly was so miraculous about it.

Not surprisingly, St. Mellivora is the patron of sausage-makers, as well as beekeepers and, for some reason, professional dowsers. Bratwurst makers, however, eschew the worship of St. Mellivora in favor of St. Ungo the Well-Endowed, for reasons that we will not get into here.


"Mellivora" is the genus name of the African honey badger, an obscure and vicious mammal that I always kinda wanted to paint.

No, I don't know what's up with the saints. I just like writing the little stories that go with them...

Original is 6 x 9 ish, slated for the Anthrocon art show, unless somebody makes me an offer first. Prints are available for $10 plus shipping, send a note or visit [link] for details!
