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.
