    The spinning tri-leg is a motif from ancient greece!! I’ve seen it on shields…sometimes there’s a blonde head in the middle, I think that one is the emblem for ancient Sicily…I just picture it rolling across the landscape.

    ah good spot!! I didn’t know that about the tri-leg, all I knew was that it is the flag symbol for the Isle of Man!
    I can’t picture it with a face, I always imagined it as like a leggy starfish, and yes just like u, rolling across the landscape!
