A repost of an illustration of a knight of House Maher of Aquitaine being knocked off his horse by a boyar cavalryman of House Maev of Rus’skaya. Now updated to include the latest edition of the escutcheon I designed for my family and I on the knight’s surcoat. Made to commemorate the crushing victory of House Maev over the Mahers in the last Aquitainian invasion of Rus’skaya, and as a nod by House Maher to the skill and prowess of the aristocratic cavalrymen of Rus’skaya, considered by the knights of Aquitaine to be one of their few equals in both joust and duel. This piece has been dubbed “The Hubris of the Mahers” to reflect the clash between the courtly, elegant, and refined culture of the Kingdom of Aquitaine with the hardy, resilient, and rugged culture of the Tsardom of Rus’skaya.
