A beautiful young woman clad in rippling cloak and light gown of antique styling dramatically brandishes a small ceremonial axe in her right hand while holding a laurel wreath atop her lovely curly haired head. All this against a dark and mysterious background. Sun shines dimly from upper right hand corner. (Jim Hahn 01/04/95)
