great job
i especially like the statue and pedestal ;o) 5
I second that
Very cool. I doubt I'd have found everything that you did in that border; I have to wonder what the tile above contained. Heh, probably nothing at all like this tile, and the border you got was just simply a bottom to that tile.

By the way, why did monks/friars have that shaved center haircut? It'd have to be intentional, wouldn't it?
Re: I second that
Tonsure, from the Latin tonsura, denotes the cutting of the hair as well as the shaven crown worn by clerics as a distinctive mark of their state.
The origin of the tonsure must probably be sought in the custom prevailing among the Romans of shaving the head of a slave. Confessors of the faith were in some cases treated in the same manner out of contempt and mockery. To proclaim themselves slaves of Christ, monks at a very early date began to shave their heads.
