I've been wanting to do a new Hogwarts Founders picture for quite a while but could not resolve what I wanted to do. I settled on a series of stained glass windows of sorts with each of the founders holding their respective artifacts.
Above them, I have included the Latin phrases I found that pertain to each house:
Here are the translations:
Honoris Causa: For the Sake of Honor
Absit Invidia: Let Ill Will Be Absent
Sapienti Sat: Enough for the Wise
Pro Se: For Oneself.
As a note, Rowena Ravenclaw's pose is based off of on the John Singer Sargent Painting "Ellen Terry as Lady Macbeth."
Ever since I saw the painting, I've wanted to depict Rowena Ravenclaw in a similar fashion albeit less menacing.
Enjoy!

Do you mean the link for the "Download" file? It works fine for me, but I re-uploaded the file anyway. I hope that works!

Ohhhh that I have no control over, unfortunately. I will remove them from my description though, so thank you for brining it my to my attention! The Sargent painting is "Ellen Terry as Lady Macbeth" if you wanted to Google it.
