The Ariel, on the other hand, evidently belonged to the Arrowheads.
...Although I remember some sources, hell-bent on maintaining the idea of ship-specific symbols, interpreting these as Pierced Arrowheads, with an extra transverse element. (To be fired by a Broken Bow?)
Any ideas (GSchnitzer
to the rescue?) on how exactly Theiss or whoever ended up with these delightfully odd shapes? I mean, the flower pattern or the rectangle is fairly generic, but Decker's knot takes some doing...
