An Octopus displayed? Lol okay. Still, perhaps better have the Octopus facing the viewer. Bird's eye never is good for charges.

Well.. after many and numerous disputes about the "Octopus Issue" ... don't get me started...

... It all began several weeks ago when his Lordship and I were having lunch in a fine restaurant. We were debating the issue about the CoA of the Khraicaan Isles and he wanted an octopus as a charge. All fine and dandy until I decided to go online to find a proper octopus for display. non-copyrighted, large enough, not too many details, outlined, etc. Found NOTHING! I mean... the only thing Wikimedia offered was a flimsy Or squid. :puke:
So I searched and searched and found two pics. the one that you see above and another that, after her Grace Aiza saw it, was not fit to be called a cephalopode. So, desperately, I asked MH's opinion... the one that you see is the winner, and so... uncomplaining I eventually posted this one. :pissedoff:

I do believe that an Octopus in Heraldry cannot be displayed of proper, right? So I'll change that right away :D

lol okay ... definitely a nice idea XD

Of course it can. Everything can be displayed as proper, even a chamaeleon. It just doesn't make sense sometimes.

Please help me to come up with a CoA for the County of Angtyon, belonging to His Lordship, Stefan ven Thraciae, (CoA here:[link]) :D as I have little ideas right now and he kinda gave us a free hand regarding the design :D ... well, he actually wanted something inspired from his own CoA but he just has Azure 3 lions passant reguardant... :|
