On the monument of Georg von Frankenstein, the dragon-slayer, you will see some additional shields: to the left of his face (as you face him) there is the double war hatchet shield. To the right of his face there is a shiels bearing a design like the top half of a prancing goat on the shield. At his feet is the Lindwurm: he is standing on the dragon that he slew and which killed him as it died. To the left of his feet is a shield with a ziggurat--like the step pyramids of Babylon--and a seven pointed star rising above it. To the right of his feeet there is a fourth shield, with what appears to be wicked-looking hook of some sort.
