The Arms of Dieter Bryant Rudolph

The crest is partly based on 'The Fable of the Knight and the Pig' - a children's story book written by the armiger. The piglet is a symbol of innocence and Sable was chosen to represent stealth while the piglet holding the moon represents ingenuity. The wings and rope illustrate the achieving of the impossible partly through ingenuous means. To the armiger, Argent represents the thrill of possibility.

The serpent wrapped around the legs of the piglet and biting its tail represents the achieving of the impossible partly through cunning and it has other personal significance to the armiger. The armiger chose Or as representing the Divine.

On the shield, the Argent stars were chosen by the armiger to represent hope with the stars of Azure signifying the romance of adventure. The Azure of the field represents the night sky and signifies ďa warrior's valour to seek truth even in forbidden placesĒ.

The plate at the centre of the shield represents the moon and its pull of the armiger towards the divine, with its gyronny rays beckoning the armiger towards the mysterious.

The lion represents courage and nobility; the courage to rule over oneself, and if one must rule over others, then to do so at one's core from the heart and not from the ego. The knocking ring represents the need to keep seeking until the thirst created by the moon is quenched.

The stars in the sky, the night sky, the moon and its rays all together demonstrate the internal and external world, and the vastness of life - that there is more to life than what can be seen.
The mountain represents the journey that must be taken to see what is beyond the mountain, and the desire to seek out hidden places.

The sculpting of the lion's head on the cliff face illustrates creativity, dedication and perseverance.
The shooting stars that have landed on the mountain represents the taking of ideas from oneís internal world and bringing them down to earth by forging them into physical reality.

This shield serves more than one purpose. Aside from its purpose to inspire the armiger, it is a board game, which reflects the armiger's interest in games of all kinds and their mechanics and design, and the shield is also a portal. Creative and/or intuitive individuals can figure out how to use both functions (there is more than one way to use both), or create their own ways. The armiger has an interest in music and the medieval history and lore of England and Japan.
