Firedrakes, Aereolites, Meteorites

Preparing a sketch for painting. An encounter in mythical medieval times with the wondrous meteorite. Then it was called "spittle of the stars" and they believed it left a jelly-like viscous material in fields. Some have theorized that this substance was just rotten potatoes mistaken for fallen or "shot stars". It must have been a strange time to be alive.
