This illustration is loosely based on Hannibal the Great. The idea of this art isn’t about a conqueror who necessarily conquers others, but one who works to conquer himself. The vanquisher works daily to win over his own will and make it a slave to himself. He is not even afraid of death.
“Come at me. Do it, on this day, and every other day but know this that you will never destroy me. Come at me everyday but every day I will never fear you. One day God will damn you. I will never fear you. Death I will never fear you.”~Michael Kurcina
Take action. Live deliberately. Live vitally.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
A Spotter is the known as the consummate Chessman. He identifies issues, gathers information on the threats, devises a plan, and executes it successfully. In heraldry, the skull represents victory of life over death, and our spotter tower is a fortress that is a testament to his ability. Sometimes success is achieved by looking inside rather than beyond, and it is gained by listening to what you ‘know’. He is the sentinel that watches over others, himself, and learns in order that he can point the way out of danger.
AUT INVENIUM VIAM AUT FACIAM-I will either find a way or I will make one.
Legend has it that the military commander Hannibal said this to his generals after they told him it was impossible to cross the Alps on elephants.

Expect to see many more designs under this archetype.
Consider the Athenian ideal of a balanced education. From the book Greek Realities: Life and Thought in Ancient Greece, By Finley Hooper “They could play some flute but should not neglect wrestling.” They avoided the excesses of life. They might focus on music or philosophy but spent enough time so that their bodies did not become soft.”
