We’ve all seen those flags and signs so beloved by some on the political right, the ones with the motto, “DON’T TREAD ON ME”, with a picture of a rattlesnake. Well, I am imagining a reworking and purposing of that design. The motto would be, “DON’T TREAD ON SHE”, and I think the snake is changed to the mythic Hydra, the many-headed serpent or dragon. Perhaps, each head could represent a different race, ethnicity, culture, or such, and if it is a dragon, it might want to have rainbow wings. This is a project far beyond my meager artistic abilities, so I offer it up for others more blessed in that department. Another image that came to mind was Medusa with her hair of snakes, but the hydra is a more direct reference to the old design.
