The Old Code
A Knight is sworn to valor.
His heart knows only virtue.
His blade defends the helpless.
His might upholds the weak.
His words speak only truth.
His wrath undoes the wicked.
~From the movie Dragonheart
My favorite line from The Old Code is the last. His wrath undoes the wicked. Isn’t that a comforting thought? I believe this is the purpose of wrath.
Anger is much misused. So much so that we have forgotten that it has an actual purpose, as well as both a time and place when it must be expressed. That was my mood when I drew these tribal faces. I’ve never done anything like this piece in the past. I hope it becomes a trend, as I quite like them.
Should your life and spirit be in jeopardy, I hope that the knight who lives within you will speak up (or draw her sword) on your behalf.
