Section: Vol.I: the Commoners

Messrs Volkov (of the City of St. Petersburg)

Author and artist: Michael Medvedev, GHA[R]

The wolf ("volk") is canting and so are the killed sheep. The arms were assumed in 2003 by three brothers (of whom one is vegetarian).

Do you wish Michael Medvedev to make a unique, original painting of your coat-of-arms, flag or any piece of heraldic art?
Contact the artist for commission: crusilly@gmail.com
You may do it right here! Or just enjoy more heraldic artwork by the artist!
