This is a follow up question to my post from last night (http://www.finheaven.com/boardvb2/showthread.php?t=144757).

By now, we all know that to many of us, our Avatar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avatar) is a very real extension of our personality. As a community, we scan pages of endless dribble until we find the avatar of someone we know, admire or dislike and key in on what they have to say.

So, here's the question? What does your avatar mean to you and what does it say about your personality. CrunchTime also made an excellent suggestion that those of us who have had more than one avatar show the old ones so we can all see your progression.

There has been numerous combined threads that ask for the meaning of our personal nicknames we used to post under and there probably is already one that asks about avatars. If so, please combine this with the original thread.

My secret goal is to get Wharf to at least temporarily slip back into his straight jacket for old times sake :tongue:

Well...

My avatar is a mixture of meaning.

It's basically the "Canadian Powerslave Tour" poster. So it combines my love of music, Iron Maiden, my country and the fact I went to the show all in one package.

I thought it was clever how I took my user name (it's also the name of another great band) and put it Maiden font face.

As for my other avvy's...I dunno where the hell they are....my computer is a mess.:lol: I've only had 3.

I loved the movie King Kong and have tons of respect for the unsung man who played him - Andy Serkis. So my Avatar is in honor of a great movie with great effects and a great actor that has brought two iconic characters to life (King Kong and Gollum)

Mine, well the idea was to make a play on dia de muertos, and in that spirit, have a dolphin skeleton with a sombrero, so it would scream out mexican... The skeleton is not exactly very dia de muertos like. But I have to say, I like it a lot.

I used to have the horrible miami dolphins 3D ball, and after that, Felix the Cat

1. The ichthus (fish) was an symbol for early Christians in the church. They were being persecuted and put to death for their beliefs. They would meet in catacombs and would identify each other by drawing this ichthus on the ground.
2. The ichthus is also a sign of Christians because Jesus states in the bible that he would make Peter (a fisherman) a fisher of men.

Thanks for allowing me to say that Brother Celt. :wink:

Whats the difference?

Mine is just a picture of me taking a piss in the backyard of a friend's house, it was a hell of a party. Before I just had some album cover art of SoundGarden's Superunknown album and then there was Audioslave's Out Of Exile Album. Then there was the Chuck Norris avy, the Cleo lemon avy and a bunch of different Dolphin avys. So that beings us to the pic of me taking a piss, it is truly a work of art, I plan to keep this one on here.

The red symbol is an Ankh (http://www.holoweb.net/~liam/pictures/ankh/ankh.html) ... also see Ankh (http://paganwiccan.about.com/od/symbols/p/ankh.htm)

I've worn a gold one on a chain around my neck since my father brought it back from Egypt for me when I was about 12.

The blue symbol behind it is Aum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aum) ...

I guess the difference is, if they where just some chicks sporting Fins gear, they would get bonus points.

a Dolphins Cheerleader would have to wear the gear because they have too.

My avatar is of a Celtic knot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celtic_knot) and is in homage (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homage) to my Scottish and Irish ancestory.

The Celtic knot is seen in many forms. I chose this one because of its 3-dimensional characteristics and because of the jade (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jade)-like medium on which it is carved. Both the use of jade in art and the Celtic knot predate modern history and each have modern and spiritual significance.

My sig is just an American Eagle flipping off the extremist foes who seek to overthrow our way of life and to impose their religious beliefs on the world...and because it looked cool :wink:

We wound up in Mass and the surrounding areas. My Great grampa moved his family to Ohio. Somewhere in the transfer from UK to US stage, the family adopted the last name of the Royal Bishop who also fled Scotland. It is that name I still have.

Now I know why I have felt such a kindred spirt with you for all this time and call you brother
