WHY THE RAVEN COAT OF ARMS?
The raven coat of arms is Nathan's personal logo. It holds very deep, profound significance to him. It symbolizes who he is and how he has been created. It also is symbolic of how he as an artist, doing what he has been created to do, can change the world for the better.
Here are the specifics:
Raven: Represents a seer, prophetic, healer, messenger, intelligence, knowledge and a harbinger of joy.
Pomegranate Branch: Righteousness, abundance and generosity.
Sword: Power to penetrate, victory; the Word of God.
Shield & Sash: Faith, covered in purity, protection.
