An Tir KLOI from Tir Righ dated 2018-03-06

Greetings unto Black Lion, Lions Blood and the College of Heralds. Please find herein this month's submissions for Tir Righ.

Commentary on this letter closes on April 6, 2018.

Commentators, please cite references to SENA when noting problems. Thank you.

1: Beorn Bjólfsson -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the An Tir LoI of August 17, 2017 as submitted.

Per saltire sable and gules, a bear's head cabossed between in cross four bees Or

Previous submission Per saltire sable and gules, a bear's head cabossed between in cross four bees Or was returned on the November 2017 LOAR:

This device is returned for violation of SENA A2C1, which requires that "Elements must be drawn in their period forms and in a period armorial style." While we generally give substantial leeway for artistic license, this depiction of the bear's head is a very modern interpretation, with heavy monochromatic shading about the muzzle and lower head that, when displayed upon a field that is half sable, makes the charge difficult, if not impossible, to recognize.

Upon resubmission, we encourage the submitter to depict the bear's head in a more period fashion, and at the very least removing the jagged lightning bolt style of shading seen in modern sports team logos in favor of using a simple line drawing of the features.

2: Orraca Da Coruna -New Name & New Device

Per chevron purpure and vert, a chevron and on a chief argent three butterflies azure
