"She-bears, aye," said Lady Maege. "We have needed to be. In olden days the ironmen would come raiding in their longboats, or wildlings from the Frozen Shore. The men would be off fishing like as not. The wives they left behind had to defend themselves and their children, or else be carried off." "There's a carving on our gate," said Dacey. "A woman in bearskin, with a child in one arm suckling at her breast. In the other hand she holds a battleaxe. She's no proper lady, that one, but I always loved her."
- from A Song of Ice and Fire, A Storm of Swords
I heard this part recently from Game of Owns podcast as they read Catelyn's chapter from A Storm of Swords. Loved the description so much so decided to draw my own version of Dacey's description of the gate.
A bit hard to draw the wood texture - pencil, digitally colored.
