Stauffacher - student project

I made this for my moms side of the family. My grandfather and great grandfather were both butchers. Apparently my mom played a lot of croquet and cards growing up.

My grandma would say "I’ll give you something to cry about" Which in the 50s was the gold standard for parenting.

On the cards I had the 5 of hearts to represent the 5, the king and queen to represent my grand parents.

Instead of having the lines on the crest straight I wanted them to resemble cuts of meat
