There is a bit of an "in joke" in this card, for those who recognise the main figure. It's the actor Henry Irving, who was thought to have been the inspiration for the main character of Bram Stoker's "Dracula".

The saint is from an old photograph that we found in an antique bookshop here. We think it's St Dominic, but if anyone knows better, I would love to hear your opinion. The book and the flames fitted well with the meaning of the card for us so we used the statue even though we were unsure of the original meaning.
