I'm directly descended from Richard the Lionheart. And while I agree with the above comment that it is lamentable that he was a fanatical Christian crusader, he was still a fascinating figure. I'm Norse Pagan (also known today as Asatru), and ironically so were his and my own forefathers, who were Vikings through William the Conqueror and his great-grandfather Hrolf the Ganger.
This is a very gripping piece of artwork here. Nicely done. He did favor the axe very much.
