Well, one really cool way would be to use this as a helm crest. Imagine the
effect of a whole bunch of people lining up in the field battle with such a
crest atop their helms! 

Then there is the particular treatment Vlad used... His arms feature otters
armed with glaives. The two in chief are combattant, and Spike got stuck
between them. I'm not certain, but Spike looks a wee bit nervous there. :)
