[Ansteorra] looking for a bit of heraldic art...

That's "salient guardant" (i.e. "leaping, facing front".)
She is looking for "sejant guardant erect" (sitting, facing front, upper
body raised.) 

Not the same thing at all.

I would suggest engaging an heraldic Artist, and getting it drawn for you.

(Olde Farte Herald...and be glad I didn't reply to the Goliard or Willow's
War thread...)
