Design rationale

The armiger is an entomologist in academia, hence the praying mantis and the book as charges. The animal is guardant but has its wings closed against its body (trussed), symbolizing restraint and concealment. It grasps a quill, symbolizing writing as powerful tool or weapon. The colors and Hebrew motto tie to the Armiger's Jewish heritage. The crest of a hand grasping an orb represents control and mastery of the known and unknown.
