Why We Love This

Coat of arms painted in gouache with gold details. Banner at top reads "Eta Beta Pi" in Greek. Banner at bottom says "Fleas are not lobsters, damn their souls." The quote comes from Sir Joseph Banks (1743 - 1820), a British naturalist. At top of image is a pie with a duck or goose baked in; coat of arms features fleas, a fly on a plate, a bird, and a man hanging with what looks like a beehive. Unframed.
