Would someone please explain this image?

A saint and a rooster battles Death and a dragon over a walled city? The calligraphy: M and W? Is that a rising sun or a setting sun behind the mountain?

Thank you.

Perhaps it is "a city upon a hill (Matthew 5:14)"?

"M" stands for "Mithrandir". "W" - for "Witch-king" propably.

This sounds like wishful thinking. If there is a thread here about this, then, of course, it must be true.

I only get a haircut once or twice a year, so this is an issue for me.

no, its just that there is more than 1 kind of wisdom

also - Be ye therefore wise as serpents and simple as doves. These thoughts do not have opposite meaning, there is the wisdom of God and that of the world and lets not forget

"The world is the general name for all passions. When we wish to call the passions by a common name, we call them the world. But when we wish to distinguish them by their special names, we call them passions --St. Isaac the Syrian, 7th Century
