Susan's Gifts

Seen in

The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe
and Prince Caspian

 


 

Horn

The slender, curved ivory horn is carved at the wide end in the profile of an open-mouthed lion, with a swirling main and two teeth on the upper jaw, two on the lower. See below for a good pattern of the carving from a Narnia.com download, for making the horn with a paper cone. The lion carving is edged with a narrow carved band made up of small squares that angles around, closer to the wide opening on the top, where the gold loops are.

The narrow end is carved in petals like the bud of a flower, and edged in gold.

Gold loops set in to the ivory attach the horn to a long leather strap etched with flowers. In The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe film, Susan wears it in line with her quiver strap and through the quiver buckle, keeping them together.

In Prince Caspian, the horn is weathered and aged, much darker in color and with more defined, darker carvings.

Quiver

The quiver is ivory, quite bright in the first film, significantly darker and more cream colored in Prince Caspian. It is slightly curved and carved at the top in swirls and daffodils, and bottom, in swirls and a lion head. The top and bottom carving both end at a narrow border of squares echoing the carved "trim" on the horn.

The quiver is worn so that the taller side of the open end is against the back—there's also carving on the inside here—and so that it curves with the back, then the end is cut diagonally against the back as well.

Susan's initials, SP, are carved just below the opening on the outside, and either covered in silver leaf, or they actually are silver metal letters.

The strap for the quiver goes inside two diagonal slits cut for it, mid-top and mid-bottom.

The quiver in Prince Caspian, like her horn, is weathered and aged, much darker in color and with more defined, darker carvings.



 

Bow and Arrows

Susan has a short recurve bow: it curves outward at the ivory tips. It looks to be about 3-4 feet long unstrung, of a medium varnished wood, with carving covered with gold leafing spiralling like vines along the top and lower parts.

The red leather grip etched with a lion's face, edged and accented with a narrow gold leaf trim in a repeating square design, as on her quiver and horn.

The tips look like carved ivory or lightly varnished wood, with the string notches a few inches back. When not in use, the bow is unstrung and stored in her quiver with the bowstring wrapped around the bow limb. The string is red, wrapped in gold for a few inches past where it attaches to the notch, and with a gold area several inches long at the center of the string.

The arrows are medium wood with red fletching, wooden nocks, and gold wire binding. The broadhead (wide and flat) arrow points are gold, carved into a lion's face near the shaft and shaped and carved like leaves for the rest of it.
