Crusader stabbing the dikefalos aetos.
« on: February 05, 2006, 07:32:18 AM »
I came across this interesting image that shows a crusader knight stabbing the dikefalos aetos of the byzantine flag and stepping on the crown. Check it out.

That is an interesting image... where did you come across it?  I don't actually see the benefit/humor in the image, but then again I'm quite sleepy still...

This might be a somewhat touchy thing here... considering some of the vile things that Crusaders did do...

Probably some sort of video game?  Age of Empires or something?

Its just a picture of a toy soldier, and he probably copied and pasted a eagle and crown and a imperial crown,used Paint to put in some blood (so sophisticated)  and wa-la he has something for shock value. Your so crafty Armando  ::)
