Three flying cupids hold up a portrait of Alex Sigis in a judicial collar and cape. A woman, royally dressed, offers the portrait the throne with a crest above it which is behind her on a porch. From the porch the viewer sees a cathedral and mountains. Above the portrait is a figure sitting on a cloud pointing down to the portrait with a septer. At her side is another cupid and on her head is a triangle with an eye in the center. Lines of light are cast out from the triangle. (Rozell Overmire 05/05/94)
