This was a personal commission by Dr. Manish Baria M.D. to repaint a more stylised version his personal Arms designed in America and are featured here with his kind permission.
Blazon: Shield: Quarterly; 1st Azure three Suns in Splendour 2 and 1 Or; 2nd Or an Asian Elephant bearing a Drape Gules fringed Or charged with a Trident Or; 3rd Or a Mermaid holding in the dexter arm a Conch Shell all proper; 4th Azure three Dolphins naiant 2 and 1 Argent.
Crest: Within a Wreath of the colours a demi- Bengal Tiger holding a Rod of Aesculapius all proper.
Mantling: Azure doubled Or
Motto: Veritas in scientia, sapientia in amore - Truth upon knowledge, wisdom upon love.
I am happy to take on personal commissions for the design and/or traditional and/or digital paintings of new or existing Armorial Bearings. Please note me for further details.
However, please note that I will not produce artwork based on 'Bucketshop heraldry', that is heraldry based entirely on your surname bought online from certain 'Family Heraldry' companies . Even though this is a perfectly legitimate business, it deals in Arms granted to families whose male lines have since died out; morally speaking it is a form of theft that no reputable heraldic artist will touch!
