Artemisia ILoI dated 2017-07-28

Unto the Golden Wing and members of the College of Heralds, greetings. Please consider the following items:

1: Aine inghean Mhaghnusa -New Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Áine inghean Mhaghnusa in February of 2015, via Artemisia.

Azure, in pale a three tailed fox and a cross argent

This submission is to be associated with Aine inghean Mhaghnusa

Correction to Device (2017-Jul-29 06:07:25): This is a resub. The previous iteration was returned by Laurel Oct 2016 with the following comments:

This device is returned for redraw. Blazoned on the Letter of Intent as a "Celtic cross", the charge in base is not actually any form of documented cross. The March 2013 Cover Letter has a section about the proper depiction of Celtic crosses, which have tapered arms and the annulet clearly conjoined to the arms (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2013/03/13-03cl.html#7). This is unblazonable as we have here a couped cross overlapping an annulet in a barely overall fashion.

2: Elaine le Fevre -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2015, via Artemisia.

Per pale gules and sable, a bat-winged lady to dexter sustaining a spoon argent

This submission is to be associated with Elaine le Fevre
