This features the pillers as trees. White reveals the crane, bearer of spiritual awakening. A rare white raven is pictured. Black reveals the owl, the Night Eagls, guided by the Moon and Stars, one of the messengers between the worlds of light and dark.

many here in the Castle but I'd love to see y'all
tackle it. (In fact, I just might come knocking
