House of Black and White by LiquidSoulDesign House of Black and White by LiquidSoulDesign
After creating the sigil posters for some of the main House's in A Song of Ice and Fire series, I decided I wanted to create a sigil and motto for the Faceless Men of the House of Black and White.

"...In the center of the doors is a carved moon face ebony on weirwood, weirwood on ebony. Its grey stone steps lead down to the dock.."

I opted for the motto 'Valar Morghulis', I think this has to be one of my favourites so far.

Based on the works of George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire Saga

The design reminds me somewhat of Polynesian art.

When I began reading A Game of Thrones, I felt instantly connected with the Night's Watch. After all I am not fit to have a family of my own, so the celibacy thing wouldn't be a problem. But after reading some of Jon's chapters, I concluded that life in the Night's Watch was not that great. Then, the Faceless Men were mentioned during the Small Council's meeting as possible perpetrators of Daenerys' death. After researching about them, I felt a greater affinity to them than to the Night's Watch. Firstly, in terms of religion, I share their faith that there is a god that has many different faces depending of who worshipes hi. Secondly, I sometimes feel I have an assassin's soul. My favorite online game series is Sift Heads, about a mercenary who kills for money. The life of a Bounty Hunter is very appealing to me, and that's why I love Mandalorians in Star Wars. I can watch hours upon hours of deaths in movies, unless the killing takes too long. And in the later years, I've seen so many signs of Humanity's decay, that I sometimes wish these people would die, or be killed ala the Wanted. And not that rare, sometimes I wish that I could be the one to roll the dices in this wheel of fate.

Seeing Death on screen is one thing, but have you actually ever taken a life before? If you actually enjoy death and suffering that much if you have, you have issues. I'm a soldier, you see, and I thank god every day I was not forced to make that decision to take another life, or that I was never sent off to the war and became responsible for seeing my friends and myself home safely. I know many that did have to take lives, and they DO NOT enjoy it. It came down to survival, that's it. My life or there's.

I would rather you didn't. If you want it on a t-shirt you can get it from my RedBubble account
