another heraldic quandary
Poster: Genie Powell <email@example.com>
To add to this discussion of statant and passant minotaurs...
I went thru this phase of wanting a badge with a spider on it.
When I looked on the armorial online, I found really weird terms for spiders.
So my food for thought is...
How is a statant spider different from a passant spider?
And is there really such a thing as an 8 legged creature being passant-combatant?
Does a spider displayed look like a circle with 8 sticks poking out from it?
Mind you, I am a heraldic neophyte. That's why my heraldry is geometric shapes.
