A close up of some of the stronger symbols of the murals. On the upper central symbols, few parts directly relate to Shiela, but all were chosen to honor her life and work. The shield and spear represent patriotism and sense of duty to her country, to work hard, fight, and die for. Her headband wrapped loosley about the spear shows a well deserved rest from the troubles of the world. The shadowed half of the shield marks a constant struggle and vigil against darkness. The rose marking a fervent love for others; watered by literal blood shed in battle, from the cup of the servants heart; a cup that never needed filling. And above it all, above all things, her faith to the Lord of Light, Diem; and her oldest and deepest philosophy that no one can stand throughout life by themselves. The lower scenes isnt quite so complex, little surprise as no charachter of mine has been so thoroughly developed. Still we have Master Ranger Kashykk, first fighting the Zamurg, a creature of death and torment. On the right a latter adventure which led him to be given great wings. And centralized a tall sword thrust into the shell of the wounded Zamurg, between two out spread wings, clean and pure, warding away all darkness.
